Nine-day Week

Palmen, KEV (Karl)

Dear Calendar People

I found out that the Julian Day Number of 1 March 2006 is divisible by 9.

Using a 9-day week starting on JDN 0, we get the following months for March to July 2006:


        March 2006
 1  2  3   4  5  6   7  8  9
10 11 12  13 14 15  16 17 18
19 20 21  22 23 24  25 26 27
28 29 30  31

        April 2006
              1  2   3  4  5
 6  7  8   9 10 11  12 13 14
15 16 17  18 19 20  21 22 23
24 25 26  27 28 29  30

        May 2006
                        1  2
 3  4  5   6  7  8   9 10 11
12 13 14  15 16 17  18 19 20
21 22 23  24 25 26  27 28 29
30 31

        June 2006
       1   2  3  4   5  6  7
 8  9 10  11 12 13  14 15 16
17 18 19  20 21 22  23 24 25
26 27 28  29 30

        July 2006
                 1   2  3  4
 5  6  7   8  9 10  11 12 13
14 15 16  17 18 19  20 21 22
23 24 25  26 27 28  29 30 31

and so on every 5 months till the end of February.

The Day of Week of 1 March goes as follows:

2006 2001 2003  2010 2005 2007  2002 2009 2011
---- ---- 2008  ---- ---- 2012  ---- ---- 2004
and so on every 12 years from 1900 to 2099

The Gregorian 400-year cycle has a whole number of 9-day weeks (as well as 7-day weeks).

Seems interesting. But are we (I mean the group) willing to add TWO more
days to calendar week. If so perhaps the extension can be granted to have
9-hrs x60m x60s or 9-hrs x100m x100s, to the day or night as well. It is NOT
difficult to build such a clock or proposal to create more confusion than we
already have.
