What does that mean? It means Refuge has a 389 day year, then a 390 day year, alternating.
The actual orbit is 389.49428 days (Earth days) long. I thought that with Ember being so much closer to its star, the year would be much shorter. But with the smaller mass of Oasis the year is remarkably close to our own. So they’ll have Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter that are close to our duration, each about 6 days longer.
Since Refuge orbits Ember in 2.22551(Earth days) that means that Refuge orbits Ember 175.01349 times during a Refugian year. So I now get the task of making a calender for the locals based upon that. 🙂 Wish me luck.
