Or on the 21st in Europe?

I tried looking for the crescent moon today, but it was just a bit too cloudy for me to see it where I live.

According to the UK's Nautical Almanac Office Moon Watch site, the crescent moon should have been visible in my area of the southwestern United States, but it wouldn't have been visible with the naked eye to most of Europe.

I thought one of the requirements of Durin's Day was that the moon and sun had to be visible in the sky together, and tomorrow (the 21st) the new crescent moon will be visible to the rest of the world, so maybe that will count as Durin's Day in those locations :)
