The renewed moon was seen by two witnesses in Israel today. That means that sunset tonight will mark the beginning of the 6th biblical month, the month of Elul. MR

New moon evening greetings to all!
Sunset was at 18:25 when my search for the biblical sixth new moon started. Where you able to have made the effort to look out for it this Tuesday evening 22nd August 2017 just as I did?
Because of cloudiness, it took three of us (Bro. Craig Massicott, his wife Sis. Jackie Massicott and I) until thirty-five minutes after sunset before we could have sighted the new moon and so, our sighting of the biblical sixth new moon this Tuesday evening 22nd August 2017 was at exactly 19:00.

The next new moon carded to be sighted Thursday sunset 21st September this year 2017 will mark the start of both the biblical seventh month Ethanim and the new moon day annual Sabbath Feast of Trumpets from that same sunset/evening.
Until then, happy new moon day from this evening sunset and Yahweh bless!

We saw the high and bright new moon between thick cloud banks about 20 minutes after local sunset. DM
NOT seen, although we looked from about 15 minutes after sunset to 10 minutes before moonset. There was a significant cloud bank in the very part of the sky we needed to see. RY
