When the arc of light has a full 48 hours to grow (assuming only the first two post-conjunction moonsets are relevant), what prevents seeing crescents down to nearly zero lag?
The moonset lag is the difference between time of sunset and time of moonset.
Columns 14-15 give the UT moonset (or moonrise) moment in hours and minutes.
Columns 16-19 are the astrometric geocentric (equator J2000) right ascension and declination of the sun, in hours, minutes, degrees, and arc minutes, at the mid-lag moment between sunset and moonset. Columns 20-23 correspondingly give the sky position for the moon.
