OR, The Moon

The evening of 1/11/16 (UT 1/12/16 1:00) while walking to my car in the parking lot of my workplace, I made a rare naked eye observation of the moon.  Seeing was steady but transparency was only good in the viewing area, surrounded in all directions by 0/5 conditions.  The moon was in waxing phase, 4.16% full, with a nice thin terminator tapering gently around half of the sphere.  Earthshine was apparent in the darkening twilight.   No conjunctions or occultations were noticed.
And now back to our regularly scheduled cloudiness…
