This is a lunar calendar, represented by the (fractional) count of New Moons since the first New Moon after JD 0 (Julian Day Numbers). The count is based on the mean motion of the Moon, disregarding short-term perturbations. In this calendar, an integer date corresponds (approximately) to New Moon, and a date ending in .5 corresponds to a Full Moon.
