Well, isn't it just past the new moon phase right now?


That'd mean only a slight bit of it would be visible anywhere around.

Maybe a cloud past in front of it?

I turn it off at nights to conserve energy


It's a shame I have to do it, cos it's a pretty little thing, but to be honest, we've got to replace it with an energy saving moon.

lol wut
The moon was recently invisible pretty much the last couple of days. It is now starting to begin new, and so it looks like only a tiny bit at the moment.

Exactly what time were you looking at the moon when it looked like that?

If you'd only switch from those damn incandescent bulbs, you could leave the bugger on all night. Gore would be so disappointed with you!

The Moon just passed the "New Moon" phase on July 22 (yesterday). here's what it would have looked like on the 23rd:

"Young" Moon

I'm not 100% sure why it would have disappeared from your view, but here's a theory:
The young moon is always very close to the sun, and is thus only visible low on the horizon at sunset (it is drowned out by the bright Sun during the bright daylight). Objects along the horizon, such as stars, are always harder to see because we are viewing them through more atmosphere (we are looking at them from a side view through more atmosphere than if we "looked up") -- and more atmosphere means more haze.

That's why the sunset is red -- because we are viewing the sun through more atmospheric haze, and that may be why the young moon disappeared from view as it got closer to the horizon...

...it may have literally "vanished in the haze".
