This is a 1% from New Moon shot that I got on the morning of Aug. 5, 2013.  I thought it was going to be a lot harder
to see, but it was still quite a ways from the Sun.  Mercury was to its' upper left, Mars just above Mercury and Jupiter
to the upper right of Mars.  The morning before they were much closer, but I wasn't able to get the shot.  In this case
I just wanted to get this thin Crescent Moon.
