|Times For Emerging Crescent Moons|
| Below are times for viewing Crescent Moons in UT for Dublin, Ireland. Crescent data is specific for your location but adding your timezone offset from GMT to the Sunset and Moonset times will give you an idea of when the Moon is visible locally. The amount of time you have to see a crescent and what percentage of the Moon is illuminated will be somewhat different for where you live. LunarPhase Pro will calculate all this information specifically for your location. The data in the screenshot below was generated by the software.|
