  1. awesome – I was out looking tonight, but being in the city its all houses, so you don’t get the right elevation :) Might have been too low for us to see here in the UK anyway.

  2. we saw it here – rural Australia – the minute we spotted it, the kookaburra’s all laughed loudly and in unison! Praise YHWH :)

  3. We along with about 30 others spotted the new moon in Phoenix, AZ at about 6:40PM with shofars blasting and voices shouting Yom Teruah and Praise YHWH!!!! Ahhh, what a wonderful day!

  4. Lots of of guys talk about this issue but you said some true words.
