It is the new moon phase ans so probably won't be visible until the weekend. Yesterday it was the smallest sliver of a crescent moon and by Friday it will appear in it's new cycle. Again appearing as the smallest sliver of a crescent moon.
thanks for the input everyone, lets wait and see what happens!
ps. the only reason i am especially interested in this latest occurrence is because it coincides with the meteor over canada (a little smoke and mirrors perhaps?). anyway, we'll find out soon enough.
