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.
