Astronomical researcher:

Al Riyahd – Mohammad Al Haidar

The astronomical researcher Dr. Khalid Bin Saleh Al Za’ag, member of the International Arab Union for Space and Astronomy, expected that Shaaban will complete 30 days and that Monday the first of August will be the first of Ramadan blessed month for the current year 1432 H. Dr. Al Za’ag clarified that the moon met with sun in the end of the month of Rajab, and with the opposing path of its movement, they will meet again after the sunset of Saturday 29/8/1432 H at 9:40, and when they meet they will be on one sky longitude. He also said that the in dawn of Juma 28th of shaaban the moon will rise with Fajer prayer with a think shape and in the dawn of Saturday the 29th of Shaaban the moon will rise before the sunrise by nearly half an hour and will drown in its yellow rays. While in the evening of Saturday the 29th of Shaaban the moon will set before the sun and will not gather with the sun, and so the horizon will be out of the moon at all and thus Shaaban will complete 30 days, and in the evening of Sunday the 30th of Shaaban the crescent will remain around 25 minutes to the west of the sunset with a 1.18% lighting on its surface, and its shape will deviate with a slight perpendicularity, its horns will be nearly western and will be far from the earth by 368695.0 KM.

He also continued with saying that according to the astronomical givens in such things, the possibility of watching it in Sunday the 30th of Shaaban will be very hard because of the low lighting and its short presence as well as the need of telescopes in order to watch it, and it is very hard to see except from South Africa and South America countries because the new month crescent is not east to be seen except when the center of the moon get far from the center of the sun after they meet in the coupling moment by an enough distance with the appearance of light rays (crescent) in the moon.

So the crescent will be lighted inshallah 1rst august?...or 31 July at night after maghrib?

The fact is that the idea of clock tower, clocks on four sides, proportions of the tower, proportions of the clock against the tower and the tower general shape is all taken from the big ben idea. And the fact that even developers compares it to the big ben confirms it. But of course you can believe in everything you want

So, is the whole of the spire not going to be lit up? If not that's dissappointing to me, especially since the base of the crescent is lit up as brightly as the actual crescent itself.

It`s an amazing and beautiful building but...all those lights are just a little to much. But sure a place to be proud of for Muslims.

The top will be lit the whole time (from glass crown up to the crescent), plus the horizontal light beams, but it turns to that flashy random white lights during the AL Athan (the call for pray) in AL-Masjed AL-Haraam,so who ever got a hearing difficulties or away from the Masjed (last night I was able to see it from almost 25 Km away) will know that it's calling for pray in AL Masjed AL Haraam.
there is a bigger light beam being installed in the middle of the crescent towards the sky, but it will be lit only in special occasions.
