Plan on staying up late, Tuesday, 8/2

Earth's moon will be visible from earth then.

The last time this occurred was Monday, August 1, 2016
It will likely occur again, Wednesday, August 3, 2016!

Drink coffee or whatever you need to do to stay up till around sunset to see earth's moon in the eastern sky!

I don't know how late you will need to stay up.  My almanac says the moon will rise at 6:29 am and set at 7:59 pm, pretty much the same as the sun.

It will be a 1% crescent so it will probably be washed out by the sun.

So? did it actually happen or not?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

It didn't happen. The moon was too close to the sun and only a 1% crescent.  There is no way you could see that with the naked eye.

A 13 din welding lens is perfect for looking at the sun . Just be careful to not let the lens not be between your eyes and the sun . There is danger . Flash blindness is not nice . Feels like your sockets are full of sand.

For part of my career I worked as a welder helping to build pharmaceutical plant. Was paid more than the guys welding the Apollo series .
