At the starting of each Islamic month, we publish visibility curves of the new moon on our site, covering the whole earth. These visibility curves are presented in different color zones extending from certain naked eye visibility to the absence of any visibility even with powerful optical tools. Within these visibility zones, we choose a point of reference just within the tip of the parabola representing the "blue zone". The reason for choosing this particular reference point is amply explained in the introduction to the Islamic Calendar.
For each country in the world, we choose a point at the extreme east of the country. If fajr at this point is after the visibility of the crescent (defined by the best time of visibility) at the point of reference in the blue zone, then the Islamic month will be considered as having begun in the country, just as if the moon had been visible in the country just after sunset. We choose the easternmost point in the country because if visibility is acquired before fajr in the east, it will all the more be acquired further west, where fajr is later. We have called this concept: "the concept of the extension of the visibility zone".
