Global Lunar Crescent Visibility Maps for the Current Islamic Year (1439 AH)

The following world maps indicate the visibility of the young lunar crescent for the current Islamic year (1439 AH).

This yearly overview nicely shows the seasonal shift of the latitude from where young lunar crescents can first be seen. This latitude depends on the inclination of the ecliptic (or more precisely, the apparent lunar orbit) with the local horizon at sunset and favours northern latitudes around the vernal equinox, southern latitudes around the autumnal equinox and equatorial latitudes around the summer and winter solstices.
