Buy the 2015 Old Farmer's Almanac!
For several days each month,For several days each month, the Moon is too close to the Sun to be observed. This is the period called "New Moon," although a better description might be "NO Moon," because the Moon is not visible at these times. Trust me, the Moon is still there! As October 2013 begins, we are entering a New Moon period, so the Moon will not be visible. By October 11, the First Quarter Moon will be visible low in the southwest after sunset, and by October 18, the Full Moon will be up all night long, rising in the East at sunset and setting in the West at dawn.
