2014 proposed New Moon worship days
according to the NT Bible Model
From late 2011 through 2014 the NT Bible Model was used to approximate new moon worship days according to the beginning
of the dark phase of the moon. From 2015 the model will be used for the waxing crescent instead.
The average given here is only for these values in 2014. The range appears to be about 5 hours and 40 minutes.
Note: the synodic month being shorter than most calendar months can fall inside a month. For 2014 this happens twice! Two astronomical new moons in January and March. Hence Jan-Jan and Mar-Mar on the above table left side and on the following graph month axis.
This does not flow over this year  to the NT Bible model new moon worship days. Being 1.5 days before each astronomical new moon just moves these dates so that no two separate worship days occur in the same month.* This may not be the case with the waxing crescent approximation. There is no ulterior motive here. Having two separate worship days in the same calendar month is more a novel occurrence than anything to worry about!
* This may not be the case with the waxing crescent approximation.
