When Is Eid Al Fitr 2014?

Today as I checked WeatherUnderground, I saw that the new moon is expected July 26th. However, when I checked About.com, it says that Eid al Fitr will start around July 28.

Maybe even though the moon is new, it cannot be seen as early as the 26th?

Question: When is Eid Al-Fitr 2014?

Eid Al-Fitr is a holiday marking the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting which is one of the greatest religious observance in Islam. What is the date for Eid Al-Fitr in 2014?

Answer: Eid Al-Fitr is expected to be on or around July 28, 2014.

Note: The exact dates of Islamic holidays cannot be determined in advance, due to the nature of the Islamic lunar calendar. Estimates are based on expected visibility of the hilal (waxing crescent moon following a new moon) and may vary according to location.
