Sun to set above Grand Mosque tomorrow Wednesday 28th May

The devotees at the Grand Mosque are expected to witness the sun straight above them tomorrow at noon.

The Jeddah Astronomical Society confirmed that the sun will align with the Sacred House, the Kaaba at the Grand Mosque at 12.18 pm tomorrow, Wednesday 28th May 2014.

The phenomenon helping Muslims around the world to know the exact direction of Mecca,  called zero shadow,  may be seen twice a year (May 28th and July 16th) thanks to its location between the Equator and the Tropic of Cancer.
