And so begins the annual debate :einstein:

From what I read, you can only see the moon with an optical aid tonight in Rabat, everywhere else will see it tomorrow night.

Got the following whatsapp message

*United Kingdom Advisory on Start of Ramadan 1440*

Congratulations to the Muslim world on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.

Followers of Ayatollah Khamenei are to start Ramadan tomorrow (Monday 6th May 2019) further to the likely citing of the new crescent this evening with optical aids. 

Followers of Imam Khomeini and Ayatollah Khoei are also to start Ramadan tomorrow (Monday 6th May 2019) given that it will likely share the night with areas that will cite the new crescent. 

Followers of Ayatollah Sistani are to start Ramadan on Tuesday 7th May 2019 given that there is no possibility of citing the moon with the naked eye. 

We ask the Almighty Allah to showers his blessings on the believers and pray that He accepts our acts of worship during this Holy Month.

Wasalaamu Alaikum

This is also on their Facebook, so it's legit.

It's also likely to be the same case for the Americas, not just the United Kingdom.

According to astronomical software, the moon will be 4% illuminated Sunday night, and will set at 8:49 pm at my location. Sunset will be at 7:57 pm, and nautical twilight begins at 8:26, therefore, it is possible that the crescent will be visible Sunday night, if conditions are good, and Monday will be the first fast of Ramadan.

It is overcast here right now. 

Ramadan mubarak, shiachat members and visitors, whichever day it begins for you.

In Iran, yes. He has a representative in California I believe, who will check tonight and be the deciding factor for the Americas.
