UPDATE
I want to say here and let you know that A muslim cannot lie deliberately as it a sin and because a true Muslim fears Allah and therefore it's consequences.
 
Tueday 08 July 2014 (between 12:45am - 01:40am)
 
I went to the beach again, alone this time and sat where I usually sits. There are lots of people around as it the the month of Ramadan. Families, people excercising, and relaxing.
 
Ar 12:50am I looked at the moon an it was looking normal, it was three quarters full. I kept looking at the moon intermittently for a while (I don't know why may be I was looking for the pehenomena as described in the OP). Then at 01:10am I looked at the moon and it was suddenly dim, it lost it's glow. It was completely differerent to how it was. I can see aeroplanes flying across as the take off path from Dubai International Airport in out into the sea. When the moon lost it's light I imagine that the people on those planes, if they looked would have seen the unusual moon. Then at 01:15am the moon completely disappeared. I waited till 01:40am to see if it will re-emerge but did not so I left.
 
To me this is a miracle of Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala and if these are signs then I have no idea of it's significances. I'm not intelligent enough to decipher it.

They're not signs.  They're most likely clouds.
 
By the way, how do you think the moon would be visible at all, if the sun switches off ("like a lamp") at night?

Before the sun "switches itself off" it gets covered by the horizon. Is this the moment where the sun is "half switched off" ?

Wednesday 09 July

01:30 The moon looks 'normal'.

01:50 The moon is beginning to lose it's radiance. It has an orangy haze.

02:10 The moon looks like a dried up orange. It looks as tough it has sped up and is going out of view very quickly.

02:15 The moon has disappeared from view completely.

What about the stars? Are they shining brightly? Are you in an area that has smog? Is it cloudy? What do you mean by "sped up"? Does this mean it went toward the horizon quickly or that it faded from bright to dark quickly?

There are only 4 or 5 stars in the sky and they are visible and looks 'normal'. As for clouds they are scattered here and there but not thick clouds. The moon is at a different point in the sky each night and as soon as it goes dim it moves away at a fairly rapid speed.

On Tuesday morning the moon completely disappeared as if it just vanished into thin air, then on Wednesday morning it moved away very rapidly and then disappeared from view. Although it turned dark the outline of the moon was visible for a while as it moved away.

01:00 The moon look like an orb ceiling light with patches painted on it. It looks so close as if it is inside the earth's atmosphere.

01:30 The moon has dimmed somewhat but not as ddark as the two previous nights.

02:00 The moon has moved it's position slightly.

03:00 Going home as there are no developments to note.

NOTE TO SELF

The moon is at different positions in the sky each night.
