Adar New Moon Watch

This is an email to remind you to watch for the New Moon and to discuss when the New Moon Day might be.

It will be easily visible tomorrow (fifth day into the Sabbath) wherever it is clear in the Americas and Africa, and more difficult to see in parts of southwestern Europe and Asia. The Mount of Olives would be in the latter category; however, it is unlikely to appear there tomorrow due to showers and clouds expected to pass through.

Click here to see if it will be possible to see the moon that day at your location. If you are in the areas I mentioned, look on the second map, but if you are farther north and east, it will not be possible to be seen until the next day—the day the moon is most likely to first appear at the Mount of Olives, which would make for the day of the New Moon universally starting Sabbath morning.

I will be watching a webcam in Jerusalem that day as there may not be observers watching due to unusual circumstances. I will look for the moon and at the general cloud situation, but it is expected that much fewer clouds will be around at that time, and the moon will be out for a long time before it sets, giving for plenty of opportunity for it to appear there.

So, this month will likely be 29 days long, but I will send out the New Moon Report to confirm the last day of this month, and that email will also contain links to the Adar calendar. Adar is the name given to the 12th biblical month of the year, and I will include more information on its name and its meaning in that newsletter.

Please respond to this email if you have any questions or ideas, and also please invite others to receive these emails as well, that they may also share in the New Moon experience.
