Eid-al-Adha

This is information about Eid-al-Adha from Moonsighting.com. Have you already bought cow, sheep or goat for Qurban?

Eid-al-Adha: The Astronomical New Moon is on Saturday December 31, 2005, at 3:12 Universal Time, i.e. Friday, December 30, 10:12pm Eastern Standard Time - 7:12pm Pacific Standard Time. On Saturday, December 31, it will be about 22 hours old and about 6 degrees above the horizon on west coast of USA. This moon can be seen in South Africa, South America, and Polynesian Islands, but not in Asia, Europe, or Middle East. In USA, it will be very difficult to see. Telescope or binoculars may be needed to see it in USA. Therefore, first day of Zul-Hijja is expected to be on Sunday, January 1, 2006 in South Africa, Americas, and Polynesian Islands, and elsewhere on January 2, 2006. Accordingly, 10th Zul-Hijja (Eid-al-Adha) will be on Tuesday, January 10, 2006, Insha'Allah in South Africa, Americas, and Polynesian Islands. Elsewhere 10th Zul-Hijja (Eid-al-Adha) should be on Wednesday, January 11, 2006.
