In order for you to see a young moon with only your eyes, in the hours following the new moon, the celestial body must move some distance from the sun on the sky horizon. Usually you can’t see the young crescent of the moon on the day of the new moon. The reason behind this is because the celestial body is crossing the sky with the sun bright during the day. But it can happen sometimes.

Almost a day after the new moon, you will be able to catch a glimpse of a very thin line of the crescent moon. you can witness it just after the sun sets. In the bright yellow sky the young moon appears as a faint crescent. The sight is heavenly beautiful. No wonder skywatchers want to catch a new moon all the time.

Mohsen G. Mirsaeed in Iran currently holds the record of spotting the youngest ever moon with the help of an optical aid. He witnessed a very young crescent moon with his binoculars just 11 hours and 40 minutes after the new moon back in September 7, 2002.
