Determination of the Length of the Tropical Year



(...)"The old Babylonian year consisted of 360 days--twelve months of thirty days each... The Assyrian year contained 360 days; a decade was made up of 3,600 days. Assyrian documents reveal a thirty-day month... Anciently, the Persian year also had 360 days of twelve months containing thirty days each. The Egyptian year was 360 days in length... The Mayan year originally consisted of 360 days... In South America, in ancient times, the year consisted of 360 days with twelve months. The same was true in China--360 days with twelve months... Plutarch wrote the Roman year was [originally] 360 days. Various Latin authors record the month as being thirty days in length... The Hindu year was made up of twelve months of thirty days each... All the historical computations found in Hindu history used a 360-day year with months of thirty days each... (Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky, 124, 331-341).(...)

The angular diameter of the Sun and Moon are almost the same, as seen by an observer on Earth.

For an observer on the Earth, the angular diameter of the Moon and the Sun are quite similar ( ~ 0.5o = 30 arcmin). In reality, the Sun’s physical diameter is 400 times bigger than the Moon, while the Moon is ~ 400 times closer to the Earth.
400*1,0125=405





I do not speak English, that's why I use a google translator. I hope that in time this will be more accurate.Greetings to all of you from Poland.
