Waxing moon this week

Waxing moon earlier this week
8% visible - three days since new moon on 10 January 2016
We see the approximate percentage of the illuminated surface of the moon as seen from the earth 

By Friday 15 January we should be able to see 34% of the moon - although not yet quite the first quarter. However, with cloudy conditions over Marquard on Thursday night, I wasn't able to get photos. *sigh* 

I'm linking to SkyWatch Friday here
