      New Moon Report
      January 2006
      Eleventh Month

      On Sunday January 1, 2006 observers looked for the moon from Israel but it
      was not sighted due to heavy cloud coverage. With 3.35% illumination and 86
      minutes lagtime the moon would have been easily visible had there not been
      clouds. Therefore, it may be considered New Moon day based on the principle
      of "potential visibility". For more information on this concept please see:

      Rosh Chodesh Sameach!
      (Happy New Moon Day!)
