Saudis use a telescope to monitor the new moon of Ramadan as astronomers and scholars of Islam debate when the holy Muslim month of Ramadan begins, in the Saudi city of Taif on July 19, 2012. The start of the fasting month, when the faithful abstain from eating from dawn to sunset, is determined by the sighting of the new moon.
