For SpaceNut ...

Would you be interested in establishing a correspondence with the Mayor of Mars, Pennsylvania, with a view to introducing the proposed business calendar we are developing here?   There appears to be a significant educational effort underway around the coincidence of the name of the town, and the planet for which it is named.  Elementary aged students would (presumably) provide a wealth of suggestions for names of months.  The NewMars forum would retain editorial responsibilities to keep Good Order and Discipline in the creative process.

There ** should ** be some national and even international visibility for the NewMars forum, arising from such an interaction.

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

I am reminded that seasonal dust storms will be on the rise as they are occurring on earth. Mars observations show a pattern of regional dust storms arising in northern spring and summer.

saharan-dust-cloud-moving-across-atlantic-may-reach-gulf-coast-next-week

https://phys.org/news/2019-06-storms-mars.html

We have seen dust storms of mars global dust storms in 1971, 1977, 1982, 1994, 2001 and 2007. The current storm season that killed the opportunity rover could last into 2019 and we never did hear from the rover after its intensity did die down.

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

Today on Mars:  <<-- Days of the week are out of alignment with those on Earth due to the longer Martian Day. September 2020 next alignment estimate.

Per http://www-mars.lmd.jussieu.fr/mars/tim … _time.html

Martian Year: 35        Martian Month in 12 month format: 8
Solar Longitude: 228.0 Sol Number: 450  Change is +.6 degrees <<== Must average .56+ to complete orbit in 668 Sols

Previous SL: 227.4    Previous Sol: 449

Note that Solar Longitude measurement varies as a function of location in orbit. 

Note#2: https://theskylive.com/mars-tracker  This web site shows the astronomical position of Mars.
Note: The difference in kilometers shown below is NOT computed at the same time every Earth day.
Minus prefix means Mars is approaching the Sun.
Distance of Mars from the Sun is given by this web site in kilometers:   208,025,699 km Difference is -208,097,008 <<== 3183 km/hour at 7:54
Distance of Mars from the Sun is given by this web site in kilometers:   208,097,008 km Difference is -236774 <<== 5038 km/hour at 9:30 EST
Distance of Mars from the Sun is given by this web site in kilometers:   208,179,768 km This number is outside the expected range. (2020/06/26)
Distance of Mars from the Sun shown in the previous Days report was: 208,333,782 km Difference -84080 <<== 3503 km/hour at 10:36 EST
Reference star: TYC 4666-53-1 Magnitude 11.29 just below path

Note: theskylive.com web site dramatically increased the rate of descent toward the Sun around transition from 23 hours 59 minutes to 00 hours 1 minute.
After four days, the web site computation appears to be returning to normal.. The rate of progress toward the Sun should be decreasing.

Sol 450 is Wedneday in the Proposed calendar for Mars.

The Next New Year's on Mars will occur when Solar Longitude reaches 360 degrees.
The next Skip Day will occur in August on Earth. A Skip Day occurs when the longer Mars Sol reaches 24 Earth hours.
For those who may be following this proposed calendar closely, there exists a "feature" I had not anticipated.
Days of the week fall behind Earth due to the longer Sol, but they gain when Friday is omitted at the end of a Quarter

Events of interest will be ON Mars, or relate to Mars. Examples are launches, landings, discoveries
