Criteria for New Moons
If the conjunction of the sun and moon occurs between sunset and sunrise, the night portion of the 24-hour day, this would indicate that the conjunction occurred within the last day of the month. Therefore the next sunset would mark the beginning of a new month (moon).

On the other hand, if the conjunction of the sun and moon occurs between sunrise and sunset, the daylight portion of the 24-hour day, the next sunset would mark the beginning of the last day of the month (moon). Therefore the beginning of the new month (moon) would occur at the second sunset.

Special Note: All dates, including the weekly Sabbath, will be one day earlier in the regions of Hawaii, Bora Bora, Tahiti, etc. Refer to the following:

The Scriptural International Dateline – Part 1,
The Scriptural International Dateline – Part 2,
The Scriptural International Dateline – Part 3.
