I need some astronomical help and do not know where to find it! So perhaps my buddies at Unmanned Spaceflight can point me in the right direction.
There it is:

I'm writing a story losely based upon my stay in Saudi Arabia, 12 light years ago. It starts on Christmas eve 1999 on the Eastern shores of the Red Sea (Jeddah). What I need to know is this: was it the full moon shining that night of the 24th/25th december 1999, the 16th of the month of RamadHaan? And if yes, from what time to what time?
It's a bit stupid, but if there was full moonlight around midnight, the story changes quite a bit.

I did quite a lot of research trying to find that out, no way. I surfed the net, I asked Christians and Muslims alike, no way! But I'm sure there must be, somewhere, a site where I can set the location, the time, etc and voila.

In advance, thank you all very much for your great help!
