This is the 'young' waxing moon, three days and 14 hours after new moon. The above image is a mosaic of two exposures, one for the northern and one for the southern part. As usual, you can see the lunar craters best at the day/night border. There, at the so called terminator, the highest contrast of light and shadow is given.
