New Moon for a New Year

By a mere coincidence the New Moon occurred in the night from December 31st to January 1st, so the year and the Moon cycle began together. Of course this is of no relevance, except by providing nice views of the thin crescent phase in the first sunset of 2014.

As seen from our observing room, the Moon missed by very little the setting behind the domes of the Cerro Tololo Observatory located in front of us, but maybe that would have been too much asking...
