July 8, 2013
Claimed SEEN in Polynesia (by who, how many, time of observation, length in min. etc.)
    (My hunch: This claim (observation by naked eye) is a human concoction - based on someone's
                        astronomical data for the POSSIBLE visibility. I know Polynesian islands are sparsely
                        populated with almost NO Muslims among them, and NONE reporting personal timely
                        observations).
 
CCD: Makkah?  Rejected.
    Saudi Arabia did not follow its calendar date of 9th July

NOT SEEN anywhere in the world.

July 9, 2013
 
Seen in southern US states.
NOT SEEN in Canada (most of Asia,  N. Africa, Europe, etc.
 
July 10, 3013
 
SEEN in South Asia (where the majority of the Muslim care about the ACTUAL moons-sighting for Ramadan and Eidain) 

 
N.B. It is a Calendar issue that the Muslim Muftis and experts try to solve by Fatwas and /or by redefining the basic parameters of visibility from CCD.
