     Our planet has been in need of a new World Calendar long ago.  However, the creation and further putting into practice of such a calendar is being delayed owing to the wrong interpretation of  the concept The World Calendar and accordingly the questions connected with:

-           -   natural solar and lunar cycles, 

-           -   calendar solar and lunar cycles,

-           -   industrial cycles (work rest,  monthly plans of the enterprises etc.),

       -   biorhythms of fauna and flora.

      The simplest prototypes of a new World Calendar are the state calendars of  Israel or UAE etc: the solar + lunar (lunar-solar) calendars acting simultaneously. 

    The offered new PETIN-METON Calendar unites 2 calendars: solar (seasonal) + lunar-solar calendars.

    The solar (Gregorian) calendar corresponds to natural solar cycles, i.e. the revolutions of the Earth around of the Sun (control points - Southern solstices), see Table 1 of the Enclosure  -    .

    The lunar-solar calendar corresponds to natural lunar cycles, i.e. the revolutions of the Moon around of the Earth (control points - solar eclipses), see Table 3 of the Enclosure   .

    Solar + lunar-solar calendars have common industrial month structures: 7+8+7+8=30 and 7+8+7+7=29 days, appropriate to phases of natural lunar cycles. Standard for today (but, unfortunately, erroneous) 7-day's week does not reflect a natural lunar cycle in working calendars and it practically retards the realization of the World Calendar reform.

    Besides the distinctive feature of the PETIN-METON Calendar is "the attachment" of time cycles (6479 solar years) to the concrete natural astronomical phenomena (Southern solstices and solar eclipses) instead of use of various myths and legends.  


    The calendar is organized in such a manner that the same date of  any lunar month always falls on the same day of a week and always coincides with the same Moon phase -

    Date 1 of  each lunar month always falls on Monday and always coincides with a New Moon.

    The industrial monthly cycle of the enterprises (the beginning - the end of performance of the monthly plan) on the basis of the given calendar goes synchronously with a natural lunar cycle.

    Memorials, birthdays, religious and national holidays, seasonal works, historical chronology   etc. are taken into account in the PETIN-METON Calendar in accordance with a built-in solar calendars, for example, Gregorian or any other traditional national calendar.


    The PETIN-METON  Calendar  most correctly displays the sequences of natural cycles of time (terrestrial day, lunar month, solar year), which millenia ago were taken by mankind for the world units of measurements of  big time intervals.

    The accuracy of the PETIN-METON Calendar:

            - a lunar-solar calendar is within limits of -1,20 to +1,61 days during 380 380 years - ,

            - a solar calendar is analogous to the accuracy of the Gregorian solar calendar.  

    In the new calendar the lacks of known solar, lunar and lunar-solar calendars are eliminated. The calendar in the best way displays the seen movements of heavenly bodies: the Sun, the Moon and the Earth; it is suitable for the use by any religions.   

   The PETIN-METON  Calendar unites people, promotes strengthening of peace between peoples and religions.
