theAbysmal Calendar ~ Chromatic Counter

Tallying Time.

theAbysmal Calendar features a linear count of seconds, Days, Lunations and Years in order to more easily translate between different calendar systems. This is simply a renumbering using Unix Time and the Julian Date, two existing linear counts of seconds and days respectively.

Southern Solstice: December 21st 2012 CE, 11:12 UTC
second 0: midnight over 180° longitude December 21st 2012 CE (more precisely 11:12 UTC)
Day 0: December 21st 2012 CE
Week 0: Saturday Demcember 22nd 2012 CE
Lunation 0: December 13th 2012 CE to January 10th 2013 CE
Year 0: December 21st 2012 CE to December 20th 2013 CE

The following cycles will be recorded using lunar months as the organizing structure. As the lunar cycle doesn’t follow a rigidly regular cycle in relation to the days and the year, it follows a highly obvious regular cycle in terms of natural phenomena. So with the linear count of seconds, Days, Lunar Months, the following planetary cycles

Planetary Synodic Periods
Mercury Cycle 0: November 17th 2012 to March 3rd 2013
Venus Cycle 0: June 6th 2012 to January 10th 2014

Uranus Cycle 0: March 24th 2012 to March 28th 2013

Other periodic events such as comets, eclipses, meteor showers, etc. can be incorporated.
