ahaha sorry, I meant to say the New Moon.

and the U.S Naval Observatory confirms this:

Please forgive my typo

When they say "new moon" in modern astronomy, they don't mean first crescent like we do. They mean the conjunction of the moon, at which time there is nothing of the moon to be seen:

New Moon - The Moon's unilluminated side is facing the Earth. The Moon is not visible (except during a solar eclipse).
