The lunar 29th day of the Bible 9th month Chisleu having come to an end at 5:36pm sunset today Monday 10th December 2007,
I began my search for the new moon beginning the Bible 10th month Tebeth from this evening at 5:40pm but did not see it after
almost an hour of searching a clear sky for it. I ended the search at about 6:36pm and by which time, the sky was becoming
totally overcast over the western horizon.
Any confirmed new moon reported sighting(s) for this evening at the mouth of two or three reliable, Sacred Name witnesses
(who are Bible practising believers in Yahweh and Yahshua) is most welcomed.
Non-Bible practising believers in Yahweh and Yahshua, as well as those comtemplating on that practise in life, may be
considering on the Bible practise of searching for the new moon and to share a reporting on your monthly new moon search/sightings
with your name, the time and from where you have or did not sight the moon after the sunset end of the lunar 29th/30th day.
Looking forward to hearing from everyone soon,
Monday 10th December 2007
Greetings each and everyone in the name of our beloved savior, redeemer and soon coming king, Yahshua!
I trust that today was not one of mishap for anyone of us. It is just that, I pass the whole day wondering all throughout
as to whether or not the new moon became visible and was sighted from any part of the world last evening 10th December 2007
after the sunset-end of the lunar 29th day. Not having seen it last evening though the sky was pretty much clear to had seen
it had Yahweh exposed it to us here last evening, I again went out this evening when it is certainly out and visible being
following the sunset-end of the lunar 30th day, if it did not become visible last evening anywhere at all, but was barred
from seeing it by intense clouds covering the sky from east to west and from north to south. This afternoon has been rainy
up until my searching for the new moon from sunset at 5:36pm to 6:19pm. The rain somewhat subsided a bit just before I left
off my new moon search at 6:19pm.
The new moon would have surely been easy to see this evening (that is, if it did not become visible at all last evening
after the sunset-end of the lunar 29th day) had it not been for the rainy/cloudy weather overcast sky, as, having been seen
in Israel today as per the forwarded/accompanying reporting from Israel, it is certainly a bit high here this evening which
does usually be the case on the same evening it is being seen in Israel 6 hours (-4 GMT + 2) before us that we would end up
seeing it here too.
I tender this my (new moon?) reporting peradventure the new moon did not become visible anywhere at all last evening of
Monday 10th December 2007 after the sunset-end of the lunar 29th day of the Bible 9th month Chisleu.
Happy new moon day to all in any case, if not belated, as the case may be, and may Yahweh's grace continue to abound in
us all even as this Bible 10th month Tebeth continues to progress.
Shalom in Yahshua,
