If you would like to contribute by reporting your own crescent moon sighting, just click here to submit online or email us your report. Together, as Yah's people, we can all be of one accord with the blowing of a trumpet to communicate to all of His people when the new moon has occurred (Numbers 10:10). We also attempt to post our own sightings and in a timely manner.
