Aviv New Moon and Barley 2019

6 April 2019

Shalom Aleichem,

The new moon was reported by one faithful observer in Israel. Appeared that there was significant cloud cover in some areas of Israel. Additionally, barley in the Aviv and riper stages have been observed in Israel.

Here in Australia the new moon wasn’t sighted even though it was marginally probable with perfect conditions. The sky was clear but their was a heavy haze in the bottom 10% of the sky along the horizon.

There was considerable cloudiness in the West after sundown, but at about 8:00 EDT the clouds moved to where the moon was visible and at about 8:15 it was unobscured and beautiful. There is a bit of earthshine on the darkened part of the moon visible in the picture. JMG (2 observers)

The extremely thin crescent was sighted at 7:58 pm between the clouds. As the clouds moved away, the crescent became strikingly clear and beautiful. Shofars sounded in Lawton, OK! JI (6 observers)

Shalom Aleichem,

The Aviv new moon is expected to be visible 6 April in most locations. Aviv barley is also expected as the current states were head emergence to flowering. This will easily reach the parchable stage by mid-April.

Share your new moon sighting.

Shalom Aleichem,

The last reports were delayed as I was travelling. That said I was unable to see the new moon due to heavy cloud cover and rain in San Francisco.

Aviv

Depending on who you ask there were a couple of different thoughts on Aviv. My take on it is that the barley was in Aviv only in small samples, but the head emergence to flowering stages was the most common. Israel has been experiencing rain which has delayed the maturity of the crops. Will head emergence to flowering stages be parchable in two weeks, it seems unlikely. For these reasons, I believe that YHWH is guiding me to April for Aviv.

Caledonia, Ontario, Canada

No moon sighted. Clear sky except for where the new moon should be. Plane trails in a checkerboard covering that view of the sky. Based upon reports from Israel and https://www.abibofgod.com/abib-reports-2019 our family will be observing the Spring Holy Days this month. Happy New Year and a blessed time to Yahweh’s children during the spring appointed times. Yahweh bless, in Yah’shua’s name. DS

8 March

This would have been the automatic date for most locations as the new moon was not visible in most locations on the 7th of March. Exceptions for Costa Rica, Canada, and United States where sightings were reported on the 7th of March.

There was no sighting on 11/8/2018, perhaps due to very thick clouds. On 11/9/2018, clouds began to move out of the western sky, but there were still clouds near the horizon. The crescent moon was sighted beginning at 6:07pm through a layer clouds. WI (3 observers)
