When is the first day of Ramahan/fasting....

Is this thread already started somewhere?

Age old question, I have read many articles with many countries doing different things...as all of us are students of Al-Maghrib should we at least use this as an excuse to unite and start Ramadhan on one day?

I might be mistaken, as there are 2 fiqh opions I believe

1) Follow the sighting in your time zone/daylight time
2) Follow any Muslim in the world who has sighted the moon.

Where are our respected Scholars on this one? Moderator- can you please filter this question through as a matter of urgency? JZK
