If you look towards the western sky tonight, you might be able to sight it yourself! 🙂

Also, just as a reminder to everyone in case you did not know, Shavuot or Pentecost is the next Holy Day of YHWH which will be on Sunday, May 24th 2015. This feast begins Shabbat evening (the night before) as do all the feast days. May you have a joyful Shavuot (feast of Weeks)!

    I’m confused two eye witnesses sighted it from Hawaii on the 18th which is only a few hours away from Jerusalem is it not?
    I’ve been at this for several years and tonight’s moon from New Mexico looks like day two to me not day one. Day one is usually a whisper, what I saw was not. Thank you for your report.

    1. I am in New Mexico too right now, and I did not see it here till the 19th. It looks as though you are leaving your comment on the 20th? Well, that would be why it looks two days old.
      Hawaii is not that close to Israel…Depending on what way you look at it, they are 13 hours apart in time. We go by Israel because that is where the Word of YHWH goes out from…there has to be one place where all the people can be on the same page, and Israel is that chosen place. Even if other places see it before Israel, Israel is the official sighting. I hope I helped you to understand! Shalom and Blessings!

    Bless You So So Much for sighting the moon from Yerushalyim. So many times I had to call different people up and bug them, because I did not have internet connections, and Thank you for sending it to my computer. I was just wondering this morning about if the new moon was sighted in Jerusalem. I will blow the shofar!

    Thank you Mark
