New Moon Beginning the Bible 5th Month Sighted

Sunday evening 31st July 2011

It is uncertain if the new moon haply became visible to our locality this Sunday evening 31/07/2011 as the sky has been overcast from after an immense down pouring of rain this afternoon nearing 2:00pm.
     Sky remained overcast from east to west down into this evening in-spite of which I conducted a search for it from 18:36 when the sun set until 19:20.
     According to's imagery prediction, it looks as if it should have been easily seen from most of the small Caribbean islands especially from Jamaica southward.
     Unlikely for fair enough weather conditions from Monday 1st into Tuesday 2nd August 2011, if new moon is not seen from anywhere this Sunday evening 31/07/2011, as a Tropical Wave/Depression is predicted to hit the Caribbean islands during that time period. And besides, no money in hand to come on the internet if there's the weather possibility of going out to make a next search for the new moon, if Yahweh permits.

We'll see what happens, if Yahweh permits!

Shalom and Yahweh bless,

While the Moon is indeed aligned with the Sun (Conjunction), it will not be VISIBLE until tomorrow evening, Monday, around Sunset.  In your "neck of the woods", it will be quite high and very noticeable.  

[Successful] looking.  [Elohim] give you clear skies and a joyous watch.

On Monday August 1, 2011 the new moon was sighted from Israel. The moon was first sighted:

*from Jerusalem by Yoel Halevi at 7:38pm and shortly thereafter by Nehemia Gordon and Devorah Gordon;
*from elsewhere in Jerusalem by David Cachicas, Gabriel Cachicas, and Daniela Cachicas at 7:40pm;
*from Ariel by Frank Mecklenburg and Charlotte Mecklenburg at 7:42pm;
*from Haifa by Aaron Amihud at 8:06pm.

It was impossible to sight the new moon from Israel on the previous evening, July 31, 2011.

I posted my photos of the new moon taken from Jerusalem at:

Rosh Chodesh Samaech!
Happy New Moon!

Weather conditions did not permit a sighting at all whatsoever as we were being affected by the Tropical weather conditions throughout yesterday Monday daylight 1st August 2011 into the evening at which time the sky in general was extremely black. I only had to return home without being able to sight it for a fourth consecutive new moon after two evenings (31/07/11 and 01/08/11) of searching this time around. The last one I sighted was the new moon of Abib back in April. Since then, it's been cloudy, overcast sky for four consecutive new moons in a row.
     I trust everyone who were able to search out for it and sighted it on which ever of these past two evenings (31/07/11 or 01/08/11), did have a joyous sighting and worship service celebration.
Thank you so much for your feedback which I always look forward to from all I send out my reportings to.
Shalom and Yahweh bless,

Augustus Paul,

Thank you for your report nevertheless.  Bad weather and failure to find the New Moon are as important as seeing it and sending your report.  I shall enter your observations in the Monthly Report.
