The first crescent or hilal was visible from this country during the new moon sighting by the Survey Department on July 15. Based on the account, the moon’s altitude was
about 10.465 degrees, elongation of 11.223 degrees and it was 22 hours 33 minutes old at sunset. The visibility based on Mooncalc indicates that on 15th July 2007, the new moon should be easily visible from many parts of the world but ICOP report generalised, Brunei being the first eastern country to sight the new moon crescent.
Congratulation to the moon sighting committees of the Survey Department.
