  Hebrew calendar
It is based upon both lunar months and a solar cycle (which defines its years) and so is a lunisolar calendar.
The Hebrew month is tied to an estimate of the average time taken by the Moon to cycle from lunar conjunction to lunar conjunction.
Twelve lunar months are about 354 days while the solar year is about 365 days so an extra lunar month is added every two or three years in accordance with a 19-year cycle of 235 lunar months (12 regular months every year plus 7 extra or embolismic months every 19 years).

 Lunar conjunction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A lunar conjunction is the moment when the earth, moon and sun, in that order, are approximately in a straight line.
(See conjunction (astronomy) for a precise definition.) It is sometimes referred to as the new moon, though traditionally new moon refers to the first visible crescent of the moon.
The period of time between two lunar conjunctions is the synodic month, which is a basic unit in most lunar and lunisolar calendars such as the Islamic calendar and the Hebrew calendar (known in that context as the molad in Hebrew).

 Solar Eclipse April 19, 2004, and Lunar Eclipse May 4, 2004   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The Lunar Eclipse of May 4 originated on May 10, 1427 from the Southern Hemisphere and this is its 33rd eclipse of the series.
Since the Lunar Eclipse Moon was in Scorpio, we could unconsciously be drawn to the retention of past hurts, guilt feelings or jealousy without understanding the "whys" or "whens" associated with these feelings.
While Mercury is forming that Conjunction to Saturn in the original Solar chart, it is also forming a Conjunction to Venus in the original Lunar chart.

To be sure, the lunar geologic environment is very different from the terrestrial, and the possible consequences of the Moon's low oxidation state and waterlessness for generating useful concentrations of elements must be addressed.
The dielectric constant of the lunar regolith can potentially be estimated from the ratio of the backscatter in the local vertical and horizontal directions for areas where the radar signal is dominated by volume scattering.
Input parameters to the model are the radar wavelength, the radar incidence angle, and the dielectric parameters of the pyroclastic layer and the regolith substrate.

Conjunction orbs are rather small, usually only 1 — 3 degrees, but in the framework of a stellium, this is likely rendered moot.

 Explanation
While the present calendar (Gregorian) had its roots in the lunar cycle as evidenced by the length of the months and even the word "month" itself, it was adjusted to the solar year in order to maintain the seasonal references - its relation to the lunar phases was eventually abandoned.
Since the moon is in conjunction with the sun when it is "new", its first crescent is most readily observed just after sunset on the evening of the conjunction, but the actual conjunction may have occurred many hours before.
The duration between the true conjunction and the observation of this first crescent is a complex calculation which takes into account the season, the lunar latitude and the geographical latitude and longitude of the place of observation.

It was clearly recognized at the conference that Apollo lunar surface experiments packages or their derivatives such as Emplaced Scientific Stations or Remote Geophysical Monitors would be used on essentially all AAP landing missions.
Many scientific experiments appear very promising for lunar exploration but are not feasible now because (1) detector systems have not been developed to the point of having the desired sensitivity, or (2) theoretical problems have not been fully investigated to insure proper design of the experiment or full interpretation of the results.
Because of the rapid development of suitable launch capability and the growth of an extensive body of photogeologic maps of the lunar surface and because of the lead-times required for development of selected systems, the working groups felt that such analyses are urgent.

 An Astronomical Hebrew Calendar (conjunction+24h)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Lunar crescent visibility varies with weather conditions, clouds, atmospheric dust and clarity (especially in the westerly direction), temperature, humidity, nearby and westerly light pollution, and local elevation with unobstructed view of the horizon.
Even with the progressive drift of the Molad later and later with respect to the actual mean lunar conjunctions, the Traditional Hebrew Calendar will continue to have a higher frequency of lunar crescent still not visible by the start of the second day of most months even beyond the 9th millennium.
Abandoned because starting months so near to the conjunction had the effect that the new lunar crescent was rarely visible on the first and most often not even on the second day of the month, which would probably be socially unacceptable.

 The Earth-Moon And Temple Astronomy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Essentially, a fixed seven-squared set of lunar phases precisely interfaces with a seven-squared set of years as long as the count of one lunar-phase (the 'ot') is specially counted-apart at the boundary of each third year.
Essentially, if only one-half of the lunar cycle (in the waning stages) was counted in terms of the day-unit-starting-with-sunrise, then it could also be that in the other half of the lunar cycle (in waxing stages), the day-unit was conversely counted from sunset.
Some early literature seems to indicate that the formally counted lunar half-cycle was not always oriented toward the new and full phases of the lunar cycle, but rather show that the lunar-half-cycle was oriented--at least at times--to the first and third quarters of the lunar cycle.

The Sun is on the IC conjunct natal Mercury which is square to natal Neptune/MC on the lunar return ascendant.

A fascinating feature of this tri-wheel is that in all three charts—the 2004 solar return chart at the center, the inaugural transits in the middle and the natal planets in the outer wheel, is that the nodes in all three charts fall on the Ascendant/zenith solar return angles.

 What is the Biblical New Moon?
The lunar conjunction is the moment in time each month, when the moon moves most directly between the Earth and Sun and the side of the moon turned toward the Earth is dark.
A lunation, or synodic month, is the period of time from one lunar conjunction to the next.  The mean average lunation is just under 29.53059 days[6].  However, the moon’s orbit is not perfectly regular; therefore lunar months vary in length.
The full moon may follow the lunar conjunction by as little as 13 days, 21 hours and 53 minutes, or by as much as 15 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes.  Consequently, no method of determining the new moon could precisely satisfy such a requirement.

Because of the constantly widening gap between the time of the molad and the time of the astronomical mean conjunction, as well as the unknown value of the time of the Hebrew calendar's first molad, it is very difficult to suggest the geographical location over which any molad takes place.
