RIYADH: Saudi Arabia is set to usher in Ramadan’s month-long journey of spiritual devotion, fasting and community on Monday after an official sighting of the new crescent moon in Hawtat Sudair.

The sighting by astronomers from the Majmaah University Astronomy Observatory Department in Riyadh signalled the start of the holy month for most of the almost 2 billion Muslims across the globe.

This significant event was led by prominent Saudi astronomer Abdullah Al-Khudairi, director of the Astronomy Observatory in Sudair.
