This page will Insha'Allah track moon sighting across various countries and will be updated monthly with the current and next month's moon sighting details and information.


Shawwal 1436 Calculations:

New Moon Birth:

The Astronomical New Moon (conjunction) is Thursday on July 16, 2015 at 01:24 UT. On July 16, the moon can be seen with difficulty in South America; but easily in Polynesian Islands.

HM Nautical Almanac Office: It should be noted that the Moon sets before the Sun in most of the northern half of Asia, most of Europe and Canada within the brown-shaded area. A telescopic sighting of the new crescent moon may just be possible from the south-western tip of South Africa on July 16th. A sighting of the new crescent moon with the naked eye under excellent conditions may be possible from as far east as southern Brazil and subsequently from most of the rest of South America (except the north-eastern part) and the Hawaiian Islands on the same day. Easier sightings of the crescent moon with the naked eye may be possible from the French Polynesia and the Cook Islands also on July 16th.
