Crescent Moon Visibility of Shawwal 1443 AH

The crescent visibility map below for Shawwal 1443 shows that the moon will be born on 30 April 2022 at 20:28 GMT/UT, but it will not be visible by the naked-eye anywhere in the UK to Morocco region (or anywhere in the whole world) on that date. However, on 1 May 2022, the moon may not be seen in the UK (by the naked eye) but it is likely to be seen in the West African countries, including Morocco (Dakhla).
