Ramazaan moon Puzzle

ramazaan will meet us in days and the biggest puzzle every year is what would be the first day of ramazaan. the calendar says it is the 13th of september. but sometimes its decided against the calendar. sometimes its decided according to astrological data other times it is decided if the moon was sighted to a muslim nation. the ordinary person dosent have a clue when it would be the first day. sometimes if the astrological data says that the moon wont be sighted then it wont be decided as the first of ramazaan other times its acted differently. some say its decided to the mood the president is. hope the president is in a good mood when he returns from jordan

I don't mean to nitpick but since you used the word "astrological" twice where "astronomical" should have been used I just had to comment. It is common among Maldivians to be unable to differentiate between the proper science of astronomy and the pseudo-science of astrology. There is a HUGE difference between the two. Astronomical data and predictions are pretty damn accurate and is not fallible like our President or human moon sighters :)
