    2. Seen: MCW member Dr Javad Torabinejad from Blacksburg VA reported: Today (Wednesday, May 12, 2021), the crescent moon was sighted in Blacksburg, VA (Lat: 37� 15' 40" N, Lng: 80� 26' 56" W, and elevation: 646 meters). With prior knowledge of the approximate position of the moon in the sky according to Stellarium software and the actual observation of Venus during the past two days, using a pair of binoculars (7X50), I started looking for the planet in small clearings. The first optical aided sighting of Venus was at 8:35 pm. In the absence of clouds, I could have sighted Venus much earlier even with naked eye as I did last evening at 8:29 pm. The size of the clearing was small and perhaps it was one of the reasons that I could not see the close-by crescent moon at that time. Thicker lower clouds made the sighting more difficult. By this time, our hope was to see the crescent prior to setting in a band of clearing hugging the horizon. In fact, that is exactly what happened; my first binocular sighting was at 9:01 pm followed by naked eye sighting a minute later. The moon's horns were approximately at 3:00 and 6:30 O'clock (3:00;5:00;6:30). It took a few minutes for the moon to disappear behind the distant mountains before the actual moonset listed for Blacksburg at 9:22 pm. By this time, all ten of us had seen the moon by naked eye. At 8:55 pm, the temperature, dew point, relative humidity, and pressure were 51.0 F, 35.0 F, 53%, and 30.27 in, respectively.
