THE EDITOR: It is certainly commendable to see so many Muslims performing prayers during the passage of the solar eclipse.

Since the eclipse cannot be seen with the naked eye, Muslims must have relied on astronomical calculation to determine the exact time when the moon eclipses the sun.

Perhaps astronomical calculation would now be the norm in determining the sighting of the moon for Eid and thus bring about closure to the annual controversy with respect to the sighting of the moon.
