The whole issue of sighting the moon vs. astronomical prediction comes down to how literal you interpret hadith. In one hadith the Prophet says: "If you see it (The moon) then fast, and if you don’t see it then do not fast" How do you interpret the verb 'see'?

First, there's no confusion of moon sighting at all either the new moon (or the crescent moon) can be seen or not.

Eid prayer is an optional prayer he may do it or leave it. Note that he even can pray it later (alone) as qada'.

The first thing to do is to have correct our understanding and then base our activities based on it. Moon sighting is not necessary now The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said a month can be of 29 days.

The Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar where each month starts with the sighting of the new moon.
