This is the followup to last night’s moon sighting trip. Only this time no one was with me, well not entirely true as I had two of my usual four assistants with me. It did not take us long to see the moon and as always it was stunning.
No noise, no distractions, not even a breeze rustling the grass. All we heard were the faint screes of red-tailed hawk in the distance. We stayed nearly 45 minutes watching the moon slowly sink in the sky and vanish below the horizon.
We bid farewell to Ramadan, a most blessed time of the year, and hoped that we would live long enough to host it once again in our lives.
To all my Muslim readers I wish all of you a heartfelt Eid Mubarak!
Oh yeah… the moon.
Peace to you All.
