Please try and observe the new crescent moon in the western sky after sunset on each of the three or four days following the instant of new
moon given above. Observations, both positive and negative, should be submitted at http://www.crescentmoonwatch.org/report.htm.
As explained before this moon watch programme is a project of the Royal Greenwich Observatory and its purpose is to collect moon-sighting data month after month in order to improve the formula used by the observatory in predicting the new moon visibility. It is important to report even if you do not see the moon one evening but someone you know has seen it. If there are predominant number of negative observations i.e no moons sighting, this can help in eliminating any false sighting reports.
Thank you for your continued co-operation in this project.
