Calculation Of Lunar Year from The Lunar Month

1) The Teacher Asked the Students to Find the Days in a Lunar Year. What Will Be Their Answer?

It is clear that the difference between the two new moons is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes, and in a lunar year, there are 354 days.

29 × 212 = 348 days And 12 hours in 12 months will be counted as 6 days. So, 348 + 6 = 354 days .

2) The Date and Time of This Year’s Wolf Moon Are 17.01.2022 at 5:54 PM. What Will Be the Date of the Wolf Moon Next Year?

The time of the new moon starts from 5:54 pm, and the next new moon changes to the next day as there is a gap of 12 hours and 44 minutes.

Now, 365 – 11 = 354

Hence, the exact date of the full moon is 06.01.2023.

3) Danish Decided to Go in Hunting as He Does on the Hunter’s Moon this Year. Find the Date of the Full Moon One Year Ago.

This year the date of hunter’s moon is 09.10.2022. It is clear that the difference between the two new moons is 29
days, 12 hours and 44 minutes, and in a lunar year, there are 354 days. 29 × 212 = 348 days And 12 hours in 12 months will be counted as 6 days.
So, 348 + 6 = 354 days
It will be easy for us if we count it as
354 = 365 – 11
So, 365 days ago, from 09.10.2022, the date was 09.10.2021.
Hence, after 11 days, the date will be 20.10.2021.

Hence, the previous year’s date was 20.10.2021.
