Between the Equinox and the next Abysmal Quarter.
Counting down to December 21st 2012 and the beginning of the world.
Here we have theAbysmal Calendar‘s lunations. They count every day (including the leap year day, as observant readers will have undoubtedly noticed). Once the calendar is officially launched, the days will count up one by one to infinity and beyond. Same with lunations and years. theCalendar counts each starting with 0. The idea is that this will make translations between lunar calendars and solar calendars easier.
This day count also aligns with the Maya system, which is unique in many ways with respect to world calendars.
The lunations begin with the New Moon (at Universal Time as per NASA). The lunar months in other calendars may begin at first crescent or other times, however, suffice it to say that those are the lunations equivalent to this one. This is a key function of theAbysmal Calendar as a means of translating between different calendar systems.
Also, astronomical phenomena can be tracked along with this portion of the calendar, such as the Equinox (Spring in the Northern Hemisphere) and the Mercury at Inferior Conjunction (directly between Earth and the Sun).
304 Days to Dec 21st 2012
