Tonight, the conditions were particularly good to see this slim crescent: the Moon was at the vertical of the Sun, setting minutes after the Sun, which allow us to see it in the twilight. Here, the Moon is about 2° above the horizon.

Let's have a look to this animation showing the quick drift of the clouds and the Moon:
