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 www.CrescentMoonWatch.org'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.

Happy New Moon!
5th New Moon SIghted from the North America Region
While there was no online confirmed reports of the new moon having been sighted on Sunday evening 31st July, there
was however online confirmed reports of the new moon having been sighted on Monday evening 1st August not only from Israel
but from the North America region as well, according to the www.NewMoonReport.org
websites, making Tuesday 2nd August 2011 the new-moon-first-day of the Bible lunar 5th month.
Happy new moon day to each and all,
Tuesday daylight 02nd August 2011
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,
Tuesday evening 02nd August 2011
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.
