New moon evening greetings to all on this Friday night weekly holy seventh day Sabbath evening 16th February 2018.

It was 18:34 when first, I caught sight of Venus low down on the horizon.
The new moon this evening was astronomically expected to be above and a little bit south of Venus which was a guide for me to know where exactly to cast my eye in search of the new moon.
It was 18:43 when I caught sight of what look to had been the biblical twelfth new moon I was seeing sitting flat on its back but quite dim due to haze below thin clouds, https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1591676960868549.1073741965.100000787822166&type=1&l=94b419b903.
I kept observing it until 18:50 when I could no longer see it. Venus also was no longer visible.
I left off from my observation at 19:10, exactly an hour after sunset.

Large crescent seen from Lawton, OK at 7:25pm, not too long after havdallah, on 2/17/2018. The crescent size indicated that it probably would be been visible on 2/16/2018 if not for clouds. WI (3 observers)
