The new moon was visible in a few locations this evening including the US and Dominica. Likely others. Here in Florida the weather didn’t permit due to cloud cover. Thank you for sharing you new moon reports.

I actually saw the new moon tonight!!! I’m attaching two pictures. The one is the clearest to me — I took it last. Anyway, thought I’d pass it on! Shabbat Shalom and have a wonderful weekend! DJ (1 observer)

Shabbat and new moon evening greetings to all!
Quite of a clear sky above the horizon at the 17:45 setting time of the sun permitted an early sighting of the new moon from Roseau, Dominica ten minutes after this Friday sunset 30th December 2016.
It was thirty-eight hours fifty-two minutes old at sunset/17:45 and thirty-nine hours two minutes old when I sighted it at 17:55 and continued observing it until 18:32, https://www.facebook.com/
Not only is this Friday sunset/evening 30th December 2016 the start of the weekly seventh day Sabbath but also of the biblical lunar tenth month Tebeth (Esther 2:16). This makes this week seventh day Sabbath 31st December 2016, NOT a double Sabbath day but a double FEAST day, comprising of both the weekly seventh day Sabbath feast AND the new moon day feast, both falling on the same day.
Cecilia Christmas reports from the island of Guadeloupe: “Hey, just see the new moon at 6:14pm. There was lots of clouds in Guadeloupe, I had to wait long to see it. Happy new moon.”
Shabbat shalom and happy new-moon-first-day of the biblical tenth month to all!
