On the second day of the Aviv Search (March 12, 2013) we found more Aviv Barley in the Jordan Valley. We examined one field at Nachal Firan that was 100% Aviv. I posted photos at: https://www.facebook.com/NehemiaGordon
The coming new moon will be Chodesh Ha-Aviv - the New Moon of the Aviv. We will look for the new moon tonight in Israel. With 0.90% illumination and 47 minutes lagtime visibility is unlikely on Tuesday night. If the moon is not visible from Israel on Tuesday night, the Biblical year will begin on Wednesday night.
