Long before we get to see the moon, our neighbors over on top of the next mountain see it rising. The neighbors are a moshav (village) and an IDF base. They see the moon come up over several Arab villages which are just over the Green Line (the 1967 border), in the West Bank already.
I make just a quarter turn to the east and there is Jerusalem twinkling on the horizon across the valley!
Happy full moon viewing to all of you tonight!
