Jeremiahn is a simple calendar for Mars. This is a Christian calendar for Mars. It is the only Christian calendar for Mars, so far. This calendar also has variants to be used on every other planet and a few dwarfs. With the Gas Giant variants they are mostly for used on their moons. Each of my variants also has Christian aspects.

A Calendar Variant for Uranus

This is Jeremiahn Variant Calendar Five for Uranus[1]. I see no reasons why each moon of Uranus should have its own calendar. It seems much more reasonable to design the calendar for Uranus not its moons[2]. If we had a colony on Earth’s moon you would use the Gregorian or Earth calendar for daily planning, not a calendar based on the Moon like the Chinese. They are some very surprising facts about Uranus when trying to make a calendar for its moons. NASA recognizes this as Uranus’ official rotation: 17.2397 h (17 h 14' 23"), so the length I will use is that times two: 34.4794 h (34 h 28' 45.84"). Uranus rotation is retrograde, not that that is important to my calendar. This is a “bisol.” The “bisol” is the base unit[3]. The bisol is 10 h 28' 45.84" longer than a day. Two is if you take the orbit of Uranus, 84.019 E-y, but with how far away Uranus is I will make it have 31 segments of 936.427 M-d or 989.913 E-d. You take that number and put it in hours and divide that by the bisol you get 689.047 U-ld (689 U-ld 1 h 37' 13.915"). The Uranus year is divided into 31 segments of this length. The Uranus year and segment are written together like this {U-y:segment}, do this for calendar year and measuring other things such as people’s age[4]. The clock for this calendar uses our hours, minutes, and seconds. We will count 34 h 28' 45.84" before ticking to the next bisol. This clock does use a millisecond counter. It is good to preserve our hours, minutes, and seconds; because not doing so would make measuring time way too confusing. Each segment has 24 months; span 28-30 U-ld each. This calendar does start with one on its Uranus year count. A 689 U-ld regular segment and a 690 U-ld irregular segment. A common Uranus year has 31 regular segments and a leap Uranus year has 30 regular segments and one irregular segment. Uranus is 2,870,972,200 km (19.191 AU) from the Sun, which gives it a longer year.
Uranus, discovered by Sir William Herchel in 1781, was the first planet discovered using a telescope. It was named for the father of the Titans in Roman mythology.
The atmosphere is composed primarily of 82.5 percent hydrogen, 15.2 percent helium, 2.3 percent methane, with small amounts of hydrogen deutride, ammonia ice, water ice, ammonia hydrosulfide, and methane ice.
Uranus has no solid surface, and likely no rocky core but rather a mixture of rocks and assorted ices with about 15 percent hydrogen and some helium.
Uranus has 27 known moons, which have orbits lying in the plane of the planet’s equator. Five moons are relatively large, while 22 are very small and were only discovered with the Voyager 2 mission or in later observations. Miranda has grooved markings, reminiscent of Jupiter’s Ganymede, but often arranged in a chevron pattern. Rifts and channels on Ariel provide evidence of liquid flowing over its surface in the past. Umbriel is extremely dark, prompting some observers to regard its surface as among the oldest in the system. Titania has rifts fractures, but not the evidence of flow found on Ariel. Oberon’s main feature is its surface saturated with craters, unrelieved by other formations.
The 31 Segments in my Uranus year are:

15. Cygnus 24 689 31. Omega 24 689
16. Eridanus 24 689
In the equatorial plane there is also a complex of 11 rings, nine of which were discovered in 1978 by observers watching Uranus pass before a star.
Once considered one of the blander-looking planets, Uranus (pronounced YOOR un nus) has been revealed as a dynamic world with some of the brightest clouds in the outer solar system and 11 rings. The first planet found with the aid of a telescope, Uranus was discovered in 1781 by astronomer William Herschel. The seventh planet from the Sun is so distant that it takes 84 E-y to complete one orbit. Uranus, with no solid surface, is one of the gas giant planets (the others are Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune).
The 24 months in each Segment in my Uranian year are:
#. months spans #. months spans
1. January 28 13. Leo 30
2. Terra 28 14. Virgo 30
3. Pisces 28 15. Libra 30
4. February 28-29 16. August 30
5. Aries 28 17. Scorpio 30
6. April 28 18. September 29
7. Taurus 28 19. Sagittarius 29
8. Gemini 28 20. October 29
9. May 28 21. Capricorn 29
10. June 28 22. November 29
11. Cancer 28 23. Aquarius 29
12. July 28 24. December 29
Now I will calculate the calendar’s leap Uranus year. Its leap Uranus year will fall: every three Uranus years, omitted every 100 U-y, centurial one every 300 U-y. The leap bisol is February 29 in Alpha. This calendar has an accuracy of 4,677,789 U-y, its Ls is the anti-meridian. To remember the lengths of the months say: “January through Pisces 28 U-ld; February has 28-29 U-ld; Aries through July all have 28 U-ld; Leo through Scorpio have 30 U-ld; and all the rest have 29 U-ld,” and to remember the order refer back to my Jeremiahn Calendar for Mars. Eventually if the colony ever got big enough we would need to develop Uranian time zones as well. I would do this similar to the Earth’s time zones; which is add or subtract an hour every 15° E/W of the Prime Meridian, respectively. Uranus and its moons already have Equators and Prime Meridians. Someone else will name these time zones. On Uranus the GMT equivalent is Zilch Mean Time[5]. Zilch refers to being 0º E/W of Uranus’ Prime Meridian. When measuring from the Uranus’ Origin Point (0º E/W, 0º N/S) going clockwise there is 4,657.616 km between each time zone. Since Uranus has no surface colonists would be required to live in flying cities. Any lunar colonies will use this same calendar, but I will try to develop time zones for the Uranian moons. So someone else will set up the Uranian lunar time zones, but the Jeremiahn Variant Calendar Five will be used on these Uranian lunar colonies. When talking about lunar time zones, Uranus has several moons; so to establish the standard for the moons I will average the diameters. Their average diameter is 252.526 km, the time zones on the Uranian moons will have 23.009 km between each time zone; going clockwise around them when measuring from their Origin Points. This calendar is to have a seven-bisol week-cycle, so that it is liked by the religious groups. This is acceptable to religious group, making religion on Uranus easy.
The atmosphere of Uranus is composed primarily of hydrogen and helium, with a small amount of methane and traces of water and ammonia. Uranus gets its blue-green color from methane gas. Sunlight is reflected from Uranus’ cloud tops, which lie beneath a layer of methane gas. As the reflected sunlight passes back through this layer, the methane gas absorbs the red portion of the light, allowing the blue portion to pass through, resulting in the blue-green color that we see. The planet’s atmospheric details are very difficult to see in visible light. The bulk (80 per-cent or more) of the mass of Uranus is contained in an extended liquid core consisting primarily of ‘icy’ materials (water, methane, and ammonia), with higher-density material at depth.
In 1986, Voyager 2 observed faint cloud markings in the southern latitudes blowing westward between 100 and 600 km/h[6]. In 2004, the Keck Observatory in Hawaii used advanced optics to capture highly detailed images of Uranus as the planet approached its southern autumnal equinox, when the equator will be vertically illuminated by the Sun.
The seven bisols in my Uranian week are:
7 U-ld name meaning
1 Sunbisol Sunday (weekend)
2 Mondebisol Moons’ day
3 Tuesbisol Tuesday
4 Wednesbisol Wednesday
5 Thursbisol Thursday
6 Fribisol Friday
7 Saturbisol Saturday (weekend).
This calendar’s epoch is Jesus Christ’s birth. The JD count is 1,721,419. The epoch formula for Uranus is: ((y*365.2425*24)/34.4794)/21360.344; y = current Earth year, round to nearest whole number[7]. This would make the current Uranus year be +23:01 U or +23 in Alpha U. +23:01 U or +23 in Alpha U started on January 1, +2009 E and will end on August 15, +2010 E; August 16, +2010 E will start +23:02 U or +23 in Beta U. This calendar begins on January 1 in each segment[8]. The Uranus year starts with January 1 in Alpha. This is a non-perpetual calendar for Uranus; it is a Vernal Equinox Calendar. With this set up I can track the actual seasons on Uranus. The Uranus year is divided into four seasons[9]. The seasons fall: Vernal Equinox is January 28 in Alpha, Summer Solstice is September 13 in Pegasus, Autumn Equinox is September 13 in Cygnus, and Winter Solstice is September 13 in Norma; all jump back a bisol on leap Uranus years. The holibisols are as follows: April 22 in Beta is Uranus Bisol, December 10 in Beta is Exploration Bisol, and Foundation Bisol is the bisol that the first colony was established on Uranus and/or its moons[10]. Each moon will have its own Foundation Bisol which will fall according to the definition. My reasoning for basing the calendar on Uranus and not each individual moon is as follows: they are moons of Uranus with locked orbits. None of these moons rotate, in that case and only that I would base the calendar on the moon not its primary. If we had a colony on Earth’s Moon the colonists would use the Earth calendar, Gregorian, not the Chinese for day to day activities and planning. So this makes it logically to design a calendar for the Uranian moons based on Uranus not each individual moon. NASA currently does not use an independent calendar for timekeeping on Uranus and/or its moons[11]. The age equivalencies are start school at one segment and 20 months, drive at five segments and 22 months, vote at and end school at six segments and 15 months, get drunk at seven segments and 18 months, and retire at 24 segments. The length of a workbisol is 11 h 29' 35.28". This is simple.

Applications information:
To talk evolution, I believe that people born on this planet could evolve into: Homo uranianus. Anyways people would set up everything to this calendar. The fiscal year would become just a cycle of any 31 calendar segments. When shipping between planets though everything would converted to the JD count or Earth-time. Now to talk the academic year, this would be quite different from Earth. So as to not get confused in the table below I will equate it to Earth-time for you. Our fix year is 24:01 U, so 24:02 U starts on October 12, 2021 E, and ends on June 28, 2024 E.
Miranda is the smallest and innermost of Uranus’ five major moons. It was discovered by Gerard Kuiper on 1948-02-16 at McDonald Observatory. It was named after Miranda from William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest by Kuiper in his report of the discovery. The adjectival form of the name is Mirandan. It is also designated Uranus V. So far the only close-up images of Miranda are from the Voyager 2 probe, which made observations of the moon during its Uranus flyby in January, 1986. During the flyby the southern hemisphere of the moon was pointed towards the Sun so only that part was studied. Miranda shows more evidence of past geologic activity than any of the other Uranian satellites.

The importance of these applications is: because you were born on a different planet. If we were to measure you age in Earth-time we would not be getting an accurate image of how old you actually are. By setting everything to the new planet, Uranus, an accurate image of age and operations is given. The operations image explains why companies would set their fiscal year to the planet time, Uranus. Without it set to planet time, Uranus, and not Earth-time you would not get an accurate image of these company/business operations. As far as holidays/holibisols go there calendar would show both. The holidays on Uranus, most of them would be celebrated 31 times a year; the holibisols would be celebrated once per year. This would allow each holiday to occur once per segment. The life span of a human is: one Uranus year 13 segments and seven months.
The planet time is secondary. The planet time is tracked independently from Earth-time, but it is not shown apart from Earth-time. Therefore color codes are used: Uranus is blue, Earth is green.
The way these calendars would be sold is near the end of each segment, because it is longer than an Earth year. The color coded remains the same for the clocks. All planet time clocks are digital, there is no “a.m./p.m.” style for Uranus. The clocks just count 34 h 28' 45.84". Computers meant for Uranus would show time the same way. One Uranus-sol is shown as on the clock this and that 17h14'23.000" and One Bisol is shown as 34h28'45.840". All Earth-time is shown in GMT. The Uranus time zones are arbitrary time zones; they are set up to the Uranian coordinate system.
If someone was born on Uranus their birth certificate would read:
“Name: Zachary Quest Bealeton ###-##-####
Place: New Jamestown, United States Uranus Oberon Colony #####
Room ### St. John’s Hospital #### Federal Street
When: June 6, +2026 E @ 2:56 p.m. or November 19, +24:03 U @ 30h41'39.076"”
The birth certificate example above only includes what would be different between a regular Earth birth certificate and a birth certificate for someone born on this planet, Uranus. Next I will show you an example of what that same person’s divers license would look like, enlarged picture not included. All names in these examples are fake.

About Me

I am a Christian!! I am also a scientist, and I find more logic in Christianity than atheism. I have only been a Christian since I was 14, when I was baptized. I pretty good at astronomy, and happen to be a big sci-fi fan. The thing I am major good at is accounting, handling other people's money. I am currently going after my CPA. And after I get that I will get an associates in astronomy. I am batmanfanforever08 on YouTube; the "audio clip" is my YouTube channel. I am on Facebook, the "my web page" is my Facebook page. These blogs will be included in the book I am writing (assuming I ever get around to finishing it): "Listening to the Nonsense" or "Tracking Planet Time for our Solar System".
