Expected Observation Dates of Biblical Festivals 2015:
All dates may vary based upon actual visual confirmation/trumpet call of the new crescent moon & availability of Aviv barley within the region of the Promised Land

For 2015, the Aviv barley searches will begin in the twelfth month starting in mid-March with the first possible new moon of the year expected on Saturday evening, March 21st in New Guinea. Mature Barley is expected to be found at this time (otherwise, the year will begin with the next sighting in April) making the Annual Appointed dates as follows (all dates posted below begin at sundown the previous evening at the location of the new moon sighting and areas westward as the sun sets):

# Based on barley indigenous to the Promised Land (Israel) region
* High Day of Convocation (no regular work)

This would then make the Seventh New Moon of 2015 expected on Monday evening, September 14th in Australia. This new moon would mark the arrival of the Fall Festivals on the following dates (all dates posted below begin at sundown the previous evening at the location of the new moon sighting and areas westward as the sun sets):

^ - Dates based on a global trumpet call (Israel-based observation may be delayed one day)
* High Day of Convocation (no regular work)


If you would like to provide future reports, I welcome anyone to serve as witnesses to the sighting of the new moon crescent by submitting your sighting via e-mail. Together, as Yah's people, we can all be of one accord with the blowing of a trumpet to communicate to all of His people when the new moon has occurred (Numbers 10:10). We also attempt to post our own sightings and in a timely manner.
