The process of rukyatul hilal (sighting of moon) to determine the beginning of Ramadhan 1429 (in Islamic calendar) will reportedly be broadcast online from six locations in Indonesia.

While the data from the six will be transfered to the Helix Server of the Technological Institute of Bandung (ITB) and be then relayed to the Telkom before being transfered to the website of both Depkominfo and Depag.

The official site of the Central Board of Nahdlatul Ulama (PBNU) NU Online will also report the rukyat online.
