That was some smoke! I was thinking hay fire or such (Cuz we all know it was a 
"No burn day"). Those Buckeye and Good Year kids must really party over there. 

Thank you,

Jimmy Ray

Hi, Guys.
The haze in he air was all the fireworks smoke from the west side folks trying 
to burn down the city.  When I came home from the hospital around noon, the air 
still stank like smoke, and it lasted into the evening.  Since you are on the 
east side of town, Tom, you get to  look thru most of the bad air.

Thank you Tom!  Pierre set the bar high. I'll see if I can do better next 
time:-)

What may have impacted your site was that there looked to be a fairly heavy 
layer of haze or smoke around the southern point of the White Tanks and over 
toward the Estrella's. Knowing your location, I could see where that might have 
been a factor. There was sufficient haze to the West to make me question being 
able to pick out the  Moon. As I wasn't using a computer, I almost missed it 
because I was sweeping a bit too far south at first but adjusted and picked it 
up with 7 minutes to spare. 

Thank you,

Jimmy Ray

That's impressive, Jimmy.  Pierre Schwaar would have been proud.  He made young 
moon hunting into an obsession, and the youngest one he saw (from Sentinel) was 
13 hours, 28 minutes.  We saw it as an arc about 120 degrees long, with some 
breaks in it -- similar to your photo.

I went to the industrial park at the end of my street with 10x30mm binos.  
Despite knowing I was pointing in the right place, I failed to see it.

Tom
