I looked westward out our bedroom window to see a sliver of a Moon hanging just above the treeline, with a bit of a rough edge on the terminator. Grabbed my binoculars and ran outside only to find the Moon had disappeared. I went back in thinking I was too low to see it in the backyard, only to find it had disappeared from View.

So much for viewing it. :(

Following this session, I went back in the house for a few hours. I went back out in the wee hours of the morning to continue observing other celestial bodies. Look at General Session - June 25-26, 2017.
