    The purely numerical formats for month, day, and year (or some permutation of those three!) will inevitably confuse someone... What happened on 03/01/11?? We can't know without a key. I learned long ago that the safest date format specifies the month with a letter or three. My preferred date format: 15 jul 2020. That works, right? I also like the format 18 Brumaire VIII.

    Greg's moon sight was taken on 14th July  68 Eliz 2.

    To keep on topic can we all agree that the day starts at midnight?

    As for sunset - that theory works in everyday life so why not retain it? I will shortly be going out in my car and the flat earth and Newtonian physics  theories will easily explain my movements!!!!!!!!  No need to worry about the speed of light or spherical trigonometry.
