I wanted to know the practical halacha, as clear as it can be said in writing, and not actually looking at the moon together with you Rabbi Shapiro.....but

How visible does the moon have to be to say Kiddush Levana? If I remember correctly, the sefardic poskim are very strict, and the moon must be completely clear. If there is a thin cloud over the moon, can one still say it? What are the guidelines for visibility.

thank you very much

You have to be able to see the parameters of the moon's outer circumference clearly without any haze or blur.
