MODIFIED: DIVIDE BY SIX (6) LEAP YEAR RULE   

 

In modifications of my earlier attempts of 128 -year/53 Leap Weeks, and 896-year/159 Leap Week Rule, several CALNDR-L people ¾ especially Engel S. Victor, Amos Shapir, Palmen KEV Karl pointed to several schemes: 62-yr/11LW, 293-yr/52LW, 417-yr/74LW, 2147-yr/ 381LW and 3150-yr/559LW efforts. The choice of 417-year/74Leap Weeks appealed me, to merge the Divide by SIX (6) Rule using 2x417-year/148LW. The following Table for TEN (10) Additional Leap Week Cycles (for YEARS other than those divisible by SIX(6), during each 834-years span, is placed:

THE LEAP WEEK RULE (Reworked)

An 834-year span shall have 304611.9937836 days, to account 148 ‘leap weeks’. All years shall have 52 weeks, OTHER THAN THOSE YEARS DIVISIBLE BY SIX (6), which shall have an added 53rd week as ‘Leap Week of the Year XXXX’. In addition, only NINE (9) additional leap weeks, need be included at a frequency of  (87,90,96,90,96,90,96,90,96) years - except only the first three (3) years earlier (during 87th year); since 834th year (i.e. year 2838) itself happen to be divisible by SIX (6).

A 2x(90=96)-year cycle has 135870.094568 days (19410.0134 Weeks) to take care of 4600.9958 Lunations; 4972.9805 Sidereal Moons and 4992.9804 draconic months of Moons.

An ‘over- accounted’ error of only ONE DAY (0.000007454 day per year) shall creep into after a long period of 134161.2508728 years (134161 years 91 days 15.10399407 hours). As against this, the Gregorian calendar accumulates such error in 3319.846457 years.
