  Lunar calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A lunar calendar is a calendar whose date indicates the moon phase.
This is normally done by having a month which corresponds to a lunation so that the day of month indicates the moon phase.
A lunar calendar may indicate the season as well as the moon phase, as the Chinese calendar, Hebrew calendar and Hindu calendar do.

 MONTH - Definition
In the United States the rule of the common law is generally changed, and a month is declared to mean a calendar month.
{Lunar month}, the period of one revolution of the moon, particularly a synodical revolution; but several kinds are distinguished, as the {synodical month}, or period from one new moon to the next, in mean length 29 d.
The commencement of a month was determined by the observation of the new moon.

 Lunar month - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In lunar calendars, a lunar month is the time between two successive similar syzygies (new moons or full moons).
But all lunar months approximate the mean length of the synodic month of approximately 29.53059 days (29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 3 seconds).
A synodic month is longer than a sidereal month because the Earth-Moon system is orbiting the Sun in the same direction as the Moon is orbiting the Earth.

 The Lunar Calendar in "The Invisible Landscape"
In this calendar there are thirteen months in a year, the odd-numbered months having 30 days and the even-numbered months having 29 days, for a total of 384 days in a "year" (this is not a solar year).
Thus the average length of each month is 384/13 = 29.5385 days, which is somewhat in the neighborhood of the length of the mean lunar month, 29.53059 days.
The main property that a lunar calendar should possess is that the calendar months stay in sync with the phases of the moon over a long period of time.

The Thai lunar, or Chantarakati, calendar was used in Thailand until 1888, when it was replaced by the Thai solar calendar which is used today.
Two other month numbering schemes were used by the northern kingdoms of Lannathai, making a month n of Lannathai to be n-2 in the central Sukhothai kingdom, and n-1 in the Shan kingdom of Keng Tung.
Every month is divided into two parts, the rising of the moon (บึ้น = kuun) till full moon which is always 15 days long, and the falling (แรม = ram) till the next new Moon.

 Trivishtapam - Calendar - Astronomical - Lunar Month   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The mean length of a lunar synodic month is 29.53059 civil solar days (of 24 hours exactly) and divided by 30 this gives the lunar synodic day a mean length of 0.984353 civil solar days.
The mean length of a lunar sidereal month is 27.32166 civil solar days and divided by 27 this gives the lunar sidereal day a mean length of 1.011913 civil solar days.
Apart from that, it is obvious to the observer that a lunar synodic day can be entirely contained within a solar day so that at the start of today the synodic day number, called tithi can be 10 and at the start of tomorrow 12, day 11 being entirely contained within today.

The Ahmadiyyas maintain that a solar eclipse may be witnessed either during the 27th, or on the 28th, or on the 29th of a lunar month.
Conditions favouring lunar eclipses on the 12th are not too different from those necessary to obtain solar eclipses on the 27th of an Islamic month (Figure 1), i.e.
They therefore believe that (for the prediction to be fulfilled) the lunar eclipse should take place on the 13th (which is supposedly the first day in its 'range'), with the solar one on the 28th (the middle day in its range).

 The Goddess Lunar Calendar
It is possible to devise a lunar calendar which is simple to use (only elementary arithmetic is required for its use — a computer is not needed) and which may be expected to stay in sync with the lunar phases over a period of several millennia.
To ensure this the calendar must be designed so that the average length of a calendar month is as close as possible to the synodic month (at least during the period in which the calendar is expected to be usable, preferably for a few thousand years at least).
Since the average length of the month in the Goddess Calendar is the same as the value of the current synodic month, to seven decimal places, it is reasonable to expect that the Goddess Calendar will stay in sync with the Moon over a period of at least several millennia.

 full moon and lunar effects
Lunar effects that have been found have little or nothing to do with human behavior, e.g., the discovery of a slight effect of the moon on global temperature,* which in turn might have an effect on the growth of plants.
Anecdotal evidence for lunar effects is not hard to find and reporters know that one good anecdote trumps ten scientific studies when it comes to reader interest, even though such evidence is unreliable for establishing significant correlations.
According to Nienhuys, the 161 figure refers to the average number of drunk drivers arrested on any given date in the lunar month; he believes this number was arrived at by dividing 4,512 by 28 (rather than 29.53, the length of a lunar month) and hence should be 153, not 161.

 Lunar Moonths
If the days of the week correspond to the four lunar quarters, then there are extra days at the end of each lunar month which are not counted amond the lunar quarters or lunar weeks.
Since lunar days are determined by the visual presence of the lunar orb, its absence during the Dark Moon represents a time of penance and darkness not counted among the lunar weekdays of the 28 illuminated days.
If a normalized month of 28 days was in use by ancient Semite society, then that respective calendar must have included certain non-counted days such as the Dark Moon days at the end of the month.

 Deriving GUChADZaT
If the second lunar year were 13 months long, then the third lunar year would begin later than the third solar year by 12 * m /19 + 12 * m / 19 = 24 * m / 19 of a lunar month.
Lunar year 0 of the cycle begins at the same time as solar year 0 since the difference of time between these two years is 0.
Since our assumption is that the lunar years are to begin no earlier than their corresponding solar years, and less than one month later than their corresponding solar years in the 19 year cycle, it is possible to determine the deviations of the lunar years from their corresponding solar years in the cycle as follows.

 Jewish Calendar
As it was halachically established that a year be completely composed of whole months, the basic principle of intercalation was that an extra month is periodically added to the year to compensate for the difference between cycles.
When a set calendar was established, intercalation was achieved by adding an extra thirty day month to the Jewish year seven times every nineteen years, as the number of days in 19 solar years is extremely close to the number of days in 235 lunar months, both comprising about 6939.6 days.
It is claimed that the average Halachic lunar month is greater than the true mean by less that half a second.

This allows any year of 12 months to be reduced in length by a day, and any year of 13 months to be reduced in length by as much as two days, and any year, whether of 12 or 13 lunar months, to be increased in length by as much as two days,.

Comparing with the solar system, a lunar month is about a day short of a solar month (Note that a lunar month is either 29 or 30 days as against the solar month which is either 30 or 31 days).
To correct this inconsistency with the solar year, an extra month known as the intercalary month is added to the lunar year.
The intercalary month is determined so the Spring Equinox will always fall in the second month, Summer Solstice in the fifth month, Autumn Equinox in the eigth month and the Winter Solstice in the eleventh month.

Months of the Christian Era are not, as far as their beginnings and ends are concerned, in harmony with the seasons.
The month was based on moon's phases, and the year was calculated on the solar basis.
But since the lunar month, one of the earliest ways of reckoning time, is alternately of 29 and 30 days with two phases of waxing and waning moon, it was quite easy to further divide it and have four quarters of seven and eight days accommodated in it.

If there are 13 new moons from the start of the 11th month in the first year to the start of the 11th month in the second year, a leap month must be inserted.
It is very unusual that the 11th month has a leap month, in fact it hasn't happened since the calendar reform in 1645 (before 1645, all months had the same probability for having a leap month).
In addition, there will be a leap month after the 1st month in 2262 (in fact, it should have happened in 1651, but they got the calculations wrong!) and there will be a leap month after the 12th month in 3358.
