That’s a subtle and sublime crescent — nice picture! However, neither the time it was taken nor the age of the moon was stated. The EXIF data says 20:03:53, but that makes no sense. Making some rough measurements on the screen, the moon appears to be about 2 deg altitude, and that would suggest it was taken shortly after 6 pm (18:00) local time, or 15:00 UT. Since new moon was March 7 at 16:04 UT, the moon was about 23 hr old.

In my neck of the woods (New Jersey, eastern USA), the moon was about 31 hr old at sunset. Unfortunately, persistent clouds above the western horizon blocked the view.
