Half Moon 03/06/2017

Took this picture right after sunset on 03/06/2017 (right after Shabbat had begun, ~6:20PM PT). As you can see, the Moon is exactly half so it is definitely 1st Quarter Shabbat.

As you can see from diagram below, 1st Quarter Moon (1st Half Moon of the month) is to remind us about Taking of Passover Lamb and Yom Kippur - both events connected to the sin atonement.
