UAE announces first day of Eid Al Fitr

Abu Dhabi: Moon-sighting panels in Saudi Arabia and UAE convened on Monday evening (Ramadan 29) to sight the Shawwal moon and declare the first day of Eid Al Fitr.
Saudi Arabia’s news agency (SPA) tweeted that the Shawwal crescent was sighted on Monday (June 3), therefore Eid Al Fitr will be on June 4.
The International Astronomical Centre (IAC) had predicted – during Ramadan – the start of Eid Al Fitr for most of the Islamic nations.
Earlier, the statement said that the sighting of the crescent would be impossible in this part of the world on Monday, June 3. The IAC added that it would be possible to sight the moon with a telescope only if the atmosphere is clear in some western parts of the Americas and the Pacific Ocean on June 3.
