First day of ‘Eid’ will fall on Aug 30’

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 22:

The first day of Eid Al-Fitr will fall on Aug 30 because the Shawal crescent (Hegira month) will not be visible on Aug 29, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting Astronomer Adel Al-Sadoon.
Al-Sadoon explained it is impossible to see the crescent in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries except through telescopes in nations in the southern part of the equator in Africa. He said, “these countries are similar to us in most of the nights, so Aug 30 will most likely be the first day of Eid according to the visibility of the crescent.”

Happy holidays everyone.
