Measurements of the Days,
A "solar day" Is measured by the ro

of different lengths, owing to the elllp
tlclty of tbe earth's orbit and other
causes, but a "mean solar day" Is
twenty-four hours long, aa reckoned by
An astronomical day commences at
noon and Is counted from tbe first to
the twenty-fourth hour. A "civil day"
commences at midnight and Is count
ed from the first to the twelfth hour,
and then; again commences with one
and finishes with twelve. A "nautical
day" la reckoned the same as the "civil
day," only that tbe reckoning Is begun
nt noon Instead of tit midnight.
A "calendur month" vurles from
twenty-eight to thirty-one days. A
"mean lunar month" is twenty-ulne
days, twelve hours, forty-four minutes,
two and two-thirds seconds. A "year"
la divided Into 3(15 days. A "solar
year," wiiirh is the time occupied by
the sun in passing from one normal
equinox t the other, consists of 304.
24244 days, wbieh Is equal to 305 days,
6 hours, 48 minutes, 4l).5.'!0 seconds.
A "Julian year" ia 3(15 dcys even. A
