There are detailed and lengthy discussions about proof of moon-sighting which may lengthen if presented shortly as well. As far as the reply of your question is concerned, you should adhere by what is announced by the local ulama and muftis about moon. We are not aware of the scientific data and the way of its moon-sighting.

Allah knows Best!
