The first day of Eid Al-Fitr will fall on Friday, June 15, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting the Kuwaiti astronomer and historian Adel Al-Sa’adoun. 

He explained that the moon will be coupled with the sun (the so-called birth of the moon) on Wednesday, June 13 at exactly 10:43 pm. On that day, the sun would have set before the moon by 25 minutes due to which it would be impossible to see the crescent.  On Thursday June 14, the moon will set 40 minutes before the sun.

The new moon will be 20 hours and seven minutes, and its elevation from the horizon will be 8 degrees. The angle between the moon, earth and sun will 12 degrees. On the evening of June 14 at sunset, all the conditions for sighting the crescent would be favorable for seeing with the naked eye in all Arab countries and in some Muslim countries east of Makkah Mukarramah.
