The observers from Israel have reported that they were unable to sight the moon on October 16, 2012. This was one of those extreme borderline sightings, which might not have visible under perfect weather conditions…. Pending further reports, new moon will be tomorrow night (October 17) by default (a lunar month can only be 29 or 30 days).
Be looking for the upcoming report…

Just a note from Texas. I sighted the new moon from Dallas this evening. We had clear skies and it was very visible.
Hey Thanks David,
I did not get to see it from here in San Antonio Texas As well, but since we got the report of the sighting in ISRAEL, that is how we are determining the official date! But, my family and I still like to sight it from where we are! And if ever we got cut off from communications, we would site it wherever we are at.
