The hilal was not seen in Bandung, despite heavy rain clouds the clouds were nowhere near the horizon and the skies was clear which would be fairly easy to see the hilal with the naked eye. Location of sighting was in the northern hills of Bandung city, west Java. Although it was not seen today at 29th Dzulqaidah, we are still waiting for reports from eastern sightings to decide on the 1st of Dzulhijjah.
