Encylopaedia Britannica on the Metonic cycle:

*Metonic cycle, in chronology, a period of 19 years in which there are 235 lunations, or synodic months, after which the Moon’s phases recur on the same days of the solar year, or year of the seasons. The cycle was discovered by Meton (fl. 432 bc), an Athenian astronomer.*

Calendar Wiki’s opening paragraphs on the Metonic cycle say:

*The Metonic cycle or Enneadecaeteris in astronomy and calendar studies is a particular approximate common multiple of the year (specifically, the seasonal i.e. tropical year) and the synodic month. Nineteen tropical years differ from 235 synodic months by about 2 hours. The Metonic cycle’s error is one full day every 219 years, or 12.4 parts per million.*

*
*19 tropical years = 6939.602 days

235 synodic months = 6939.688 days

*It is helpful to recognize that this is an approximation of reality.*

*The period of the Moon’s orbit around the Earth and the Earth’s orbit around the Sun (ignoring also exact definition of the year) are independent and have no known physical resonance. Examples of a real harmonic lock would be Mercury, with its 3:2 spin-orbit resonance or other orbital resonance.*

– – –

Wiki: *no known physical resonance*

But is there really an error? If we look hard enough, such a ‘physical resonance’ is found at 6441 tropical years, which is 19*339 as the chart on the right taken from this Talkshop post shows.

Wiki: *Nineteen tropical years differ from 235 synodic months by about 2 hours.*

In 339 occurrences of 19 years, we have ‘339*235, minus 1’ synodic months i.e. 79664 SM. If we break down the one lost month:

1 SM = 29.530589 days = 708.73413 hours

708.73413 / 339 = 2.0906611 hours — which is ‘about 2 hours’, so our chart is accurate enough in that regard.

(**Update:** using Earth’s rotation period returns 2.085 hours, see my comment here.)

6441 tropical years(TY) is about a quarter of the current axial precession period of the Earth:

6441*4 = 25764 TY = 25763 sidereal years

Precession is believed to be 25770 years approx. and declining.

– – –

Fun with numbers: 79664 = 339*235,-1 or 766*104.

235+104 = 339

Re:

no known physical resonance(Earth ↔ Moon)From 1597 to 2099 all the Lunestices occur either ~90° or ~270° longitude in the ecliptic, that is during equinox (data points from JPL DE421).

There are 3 Lunestice cycles which run parallel through the years: at 167½, 242 (4 Inex + 7 Saros) and 409½ years. These cycles sum up Lunestices (multiples of ½Saros±½m and ½Metonic±½m) to int years.

Academic statistics can apparently not find periodic repetitions that are braided.

Time to ask why there are 8 moon phases perhaps 😎

https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/4442

If you take any disharmonic interval and multiply it by sufficiently large number, you get the beat again…

Repeating something in 6441 years is not any harmony or resonance, but mere math…

P.A. – there’s more to it than that, see here…

https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2017/10/15/lunar-precession-update/

That post pre-dates the evections posts which start here:

https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2018/11/16/why-phi-a-lunar-evection-model/

Essentially:

— synodic months plus tropical years = tropical months

— synodic months minus tropical years = evections in longitude

Also: 766 synodic months = 7 lunar apsidal cycles (see chart – 766*104 = 79664 and 7*104 = 728). Obviously 7 is not a large number.

Another related post may appear soon.

A comment re. the 6441 years:

@oldbrew, Re: 766 lunations and factor 7

From JPL DE421 data points, the temporal distance at the apsides is 766

.06lunations.A better one with 7 as divisor is 1750 (opposite semesters, opposite apsides, opposite declination), equates 7

½LNC and 16.0LAC …There is also cycle with another “root” beat running in parallel, can perhaps be nailed sometimes (looking for ideas).

Chaeremon – the chart is explained here:

https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2017/10/15/lunar-precession-update/#comment-131149

The numbers are self-consistent, I’d say. They represent long term means of course, as single occurrences will vary +/- to some degree due to the Moon’s orbital behaviour.

Chaeremon: Given the complexity and age of the solar system would you not expect any lunar resonance to be braided? Just asking, not an expert.

The main points I was going to put in another post were mostly covered by Ian Wilson’s initial comments (‘astroclimateconnection’) here:

https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2018/11/16/why-phi-a-lunar-evection-model/

Basically, 8 evections-in-longitude = 8 + (1/Phi) lunations. Given that the moon has 8 phases, the number of phases per evection would also be 8 + (1/Phi).

That was in response to the post, which showed that the full moon cycle = 8 evections-in-longitude * Phi:

411.78443 days (FMC) / 29.530589 = 13.944335

Subtract 1 for evections = 12.944335

12.944335 / 8 = 1.6180418 (Phi = ~1.618034)

– – –

Calendar Wiki goes for 767 synodic months, versus our 766:

https://calendars.wikia.org/wiki/Full_moon_cycle

However the logic of all the periods together points to 766 as it leads to exact numbers of tropical years and of Metonic cycles, amongst other things.

Chaeremon said: ‘There is also cycle with another “root” beat running in parallel, can perhaps be nailed sometimes (looking for ideas).’

– – –

I suggest the parallels are the anomalistic (as in the post above) and draconic, as here:

https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2019/08/30/the-metonic-cycle-in-long-term-lunar-harmonics/

Interestingly they are only 2 Metonic cycles apart, i.e. 339 to 337.

@oldbrew, Re:

self-consistentI take probes for at least half a century, and report the average (in astronomy that is possible IFF startdate and enddate are not hidden from the observer, they belong to the premises of the statement like the guts belong to the body). If you have better than that, and in the present case better than 766.06, then please show.

@Chaswarnertoo, sure. But the specific kind of intertwingularity is always a mystery until “we” can find cause, see e.g. the idea of Newton and the absence of generator (i.e. energy does not raise / lower gravity).

Chaeremon – yes, if we multiply the numbers in the chart to get days they all come out within a day of the same total. That’s in 6441 tropical years using standard numbers for synodic, tropical and anomalistic months, tropical year and full moon cycle that can be found easily online.

6441 TY * 365.24219 = 2352524.9 days

79664 SM * 29.530589 = 2352524.8

86105 TM * 27.321582 = 2352524.8

85377 AM * 27.55455 = 2352524.8

5713 FMC * 411.78443 = 2352524.4

I see no reason to doubt the figures. Self-consistent here means (for example) the difference between the large numbers gives the smaller numbers:

86105 – 79664 = 6441

85377 – 79664 = 5713

86105 – 85377 = 728

etc.

All the numbers are either a multiple of 104 (SM and LAC) or 7 less than a multiple of 104, as described in the linked comment above.

The chart doesn’t include the evections-in-longitude but the number is 73951 (79664 -5713), which is 7 *more* than a multiple of 104, because it’s the reverse of the anomalistic month, so to speak.

73951 * 31.811941 = 2352524.8 days

@oldbrew, Re:

We (you and me) can hardly compare output unless you use astronomical standard (yes, this includes method

andpolynomials).For me this is easy, Solex does this all with numerical integration.

The polynomials are total BS.

Statistics and data differ fundamentally.

Communication: FAILURE (like always).

Going back to the blog post:

Nineteen tropical years differ from 235 synodic months by about 2 hours.339 (Metonic) * 2 hours = 678/24 days = 28.25 days

That lies between the tropical and synodic month. The numbers in the chart show a ‘loss’ of 1 tropical and 1 synodic month, compared to multiples of 235 SM and 254 TM. So even though the chart is only a model, it does stay close to reality IMO.

@oldbrew, Re:

April 4, 2020 at 8:21 pmIf you know the interval-end cannot occur on syzygy (line-up of Sun & Moon), then find a max sub-interval which does (observable syzygy occurs this earlier). In my work that is 1 year before expected interval-end. So the whole interval is expected to end about ~12.25 lunations later; this measurement

normcan tell the earliness or lateliness of this 1 data point — observed against the lunar quadrature when it occults e.g. a planet (consider well which patch in the ecliptic shall show the interval start versus the interval end; I prefer the solstice patch and the equinox patch as norm).

– – –

Miles Mathis worked it out from the speeds of the Earth and Moon at 2.082 hours, so very close to our figure.

That 2-hour gap is found at the end of a period of precession, and is the distance from precise conjunction. Therefore the gap is not defined by precession, but by normal orbital motion. The exact gap is 2.082 hours.http://milesmathis.com/meton.html

– – –

In fact if we use 23.9345 hours (rotation period) instead of 24 hours (day) as above:

29.530589 days = 706.79988 hours

706.79988 / 339 = 2.0849553 hours

So that almost eliminates the difference from MM’s figure (2.085 – 2.082 hours = < 11 seconds).
