Wow, the middle of the night and only 4 or 5 stars are visible. You either have some terrible light pollution, almost complete cloud cover, or serious smog. I'd start there.

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.
 
Allahu Akbar!


I took a pic with the camera on my phone, I don't know how to up load it here but see this link.

You will see s domed building in the centre of the pic and the moon was just above it. When I took the pic the moon has already faded but it was visible to the naked eye, however it is not showing on the pic. :( Typical

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.


If you look closely you can just about make out the out line of the moon to the left of the domed building.

The following was taken on the third morning, the moon is way above the domed building higher than it was the previous two mornings.

FYI, tomorrow is the full moon, and the media is calling a "supermoon" because it is at its closest point to the earth in its orbit.  It happens every year and it's not really that big a deal (I dislike the "supermoon" designation), but I thought you might like to know.  The moon is about 15% larger in diameter, and about 30% brighter than a typical full moon.

And only 4 or 5 stars of the thousands that should be visible to the naked eye are visible, right?

How many times do I have to repeat myself? Read my lips, only 4 or 5 stars are visible from here. They are dotted around the sky and not concentrated in one place.
