Fatwa about Global Moonsighting [Mufti Muneer Akhoon], Click here

Dublin, Ireland-based European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) announced that 1st of Ramadan 1434 will be Saturday, June 28, 2014. This is based on calculation criteria that there must be the possibility of crescent sighting by naked eye or telescope on any place on earth. To accept the possibility crescent sighting in any place on earth the following conditions must exist:
a) The moon must set after sunset in the place where sighting is possible.
b) The elevation of the crescent must be at least 5 degrees.
c) The elongation between the sun and moon must be at least 8 degrees.

The Astronomical New Moon is on Friday June 27, 2014 at 8:08 UT. There is very small possibility of moonsighting by telescope in South America on that day. On June 28, the moon can be seen with difficulty in Indonesia and South-east Asia, but can easily be seen in Australia, Africa, and Americas (See visibility curves).

Sighting Reports

The earliest authentic sighting that we received was on Saturday, June 28, 2014 from Fiji Island.


Friday, 27 June 2014:

    1. Claim of Seeing by telescope (Rejected after careful examination by Moonsighting.com as well as by Observer's own admission): Jim Stamm (MCW member) from Tucson AZ reported:
      DATE OF SIGHTING EFFORT: Friday, 27 June 2014
      LOCATION OF SIGHTING: Tucson AZ
      SKY CONDITIONS: This observation was under the clearest and steadiest sky that I can remember. The usual 2 degree wide band of translucent atmosphere along the horizon was not evident.
      TIME OF SIGHTING EFFORT: Crescent first observed through 8” SC telescope: Time = 19:47 : Final observation with telescope: Time = 19:48
      NO. OF PEOPLE WHO SAW OR TRIED: Myself
      ORIENTATION OF CRESCENT HORNS:
      FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH:
      REMARKS: I did not invite others to join me in this observation because I did not expect to see anything, but being the Ramadan crescent, I felt compelled to make the attempt.

      I set up at a location that gave me an unobstructed horizon to under -0.3 degrees. Jupiter at 12 degrees altitude was as clear and crisp as though it was at an altitude of 50 degrees - before the sun had set. The bands were not distinct, but the image was steady, and there was noticeable detail on the surface, I slewed to Procyon, but could not see that star.

      I usually have to wait 12 minutes or more after sunset before it is dark enough to see a close crescent, so I checked alignment and focus for several minutes and then slewed to the position of the crescent. The Earth (horizon) was already within the field of view of the eyepiece. I did not immediately see any crescent, and maybe a minute later (with so little time, I failed to turn on my WWV radio) I began scanning a little back and forth in declination. In a few seconds I saw a familiar yellowish crescent. It was right where I had centered the scope to begin with. I tried to improve the focus and the image disappeared. I set the focus back to the correct numbered setting and the image reappeared, but it was more pinkish - orange this time. It was also distinct but shorter than the first observed crescent. I was convinced that I was seeing a real crescent (rather than those false white crescents that populate this type of observation), but as I was trying to confirm for certain, the image set behind the trees on the horizon. At that time, I looked at my watch, and estimated first contact at 19:47 and setting at 19:48

      Again, while I was confident that I had seen the crescent, two things troubled me. If I had acquired Procyon at 1.5 degree altitude I could have been absolutely sure of my pointing and focusing. Also, previous thicker crescents had exhibited much more arc-length under poorer skies as they set. Primarily because of these two aspects, I can not say for 100% certainty that I saw the crescent during this observation.

      Comment by Moonsighting.com: The time of sighting reported is 1 minutes before calculated moonset. The moon was setting 14 minutes after Sunset in Tucson. After carefule calculations and by the observer's own admission, Khalid Shaukat thinks this is not a credible sighting.
