I know that I'm new, but isn't that a very confusing way to conduct a calendar?
Wouldn't the dates vary based on the time of moon rise and the availability of visibility depending on weather?
Wouldn't it be simpler to base it on Mecca, or if Mecca is covered by clouds another city close by, not affected by the same weather pattern?

The Earth is not flat so at any given time you don't have a single date on the globe because the sun rises and sets differently, same is the case with the Moon.

US is huge so it is impossible to have bad weather all over US at the same time. The US zone also extends to Caribbean, South and Central America so its massive

There are problems with tiny countries like UK and they take the information from other countries in Europe and Africa.

Makkah is in Asia so solar and lunar pathways are entirely different to Europe or US

Ok,
I guess that I was referring to the international dateline, but I understand what you're saying now.
Since I mainly know only the Gregorian calendar.

Judaism also has a lunar calendar.

Putting aside Islam. It is not possible to make Makkah the centre for Moon sighting for a dead simple obvious reason.

New Moon is always sighted at sunset, Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world and it is 4 Hours ahead of Makkah. By the time Moon is sighted, people in Indonesia are two prayers ahead and going to sleep so how will Ramadhan start and end? What will you do wake up over 250+ million (Indonesia alone) and make them retrofit their fasting?

Add any country East of Makkah and you are multiplying the issue for millions of Muslims
