SHKT | 6 years ago | Reply @Zaida Parvez: Lol... Science can only give you the chances of spotting a crescent. Actually sighting it is based on local weather, level of air pollution etc. Also, if you read the article carefully, it says "chances of sighting the Eid moon" which means chances of sighting the crescent of shawal, which isn't "always there" :)
