Mr. Abdul Rahman Razeen said: "A.alaikum.In Srilanka sighting day for the month of Ramadan was on 17th evening of June 2015.The parameter's are as follows
   Sunset:6:27pm,
   Moonset:7:12pm,
   Elongation:11deg 57mnt,
   Altiutude:  9deg 13mnt
   Illumination:1.09%
   Iag:45mnt's
   Distance 386000km
   I went to my sighting place 20mnt,s before Sunset and the group's which was organized around our country was also asked to be in there respective places 20 mnt's before Sunset inorder to track the exact sighting place and to justify whether sighting will be possible after Sunset.
   According to the v/curve map i guided them that if the crescent has to be sighted then the western horizon should be 100% clear without any obstructs and the sighter should have an experience in Moonsighting.The reason for these condition's was though the above parameter's show's that the crescent can be seen by everyone but in today's sighting condition it need's to be more careful due to the moon's distance from the earth.
     But eventually the weather in all around our country was not favorable for sighting. Some places it was raining and some it was covered with thick clouds.So it was decided by the Colombo Grand Mosque Hilal Committee headed by Al-Alim Riyadh along with ACJU and MRCA that the month of Shaban will be completed 30 day's and the 1st of Ramadan falls on Friday."
