   The Global Calendar, constructed with application of similar structures of lunar months, has advantages in comparison with other calendars, for example:

- each month (a quarter of year and year) begins and comes to an end at the same days of a week,

- durations of  lunar months are unified - 29 and 30 days,

- dates of months and days of a week are synchronized with Moons  phases,

- it is not required to introduce "special" dates. Dates 2 and 17 (or 1 and 16, or 15) of lunar months are  the same usual integral days of a week, as well as all others,

- structure of lunar months is constant and easily remembered,

- the quantity of working days in each month  is constant (24 days at a 6-day  working week and 20 days at a 5-day working week). 


  In a calendar there are the precise methods of the drift compensation of solar and lunar calendars  relatively each other, and  the chosen calendar structure (see  ).


The drift period (1 lunar month) of  midday meridian of a Date 1, Month 1, Year 1 of each Meton cycle concerning a midday meridian of Southern solstice Date is compensated in the PETIN-METON calendar by excepting the additional Month 13 in every 6471-st year (i.e. in 11-th year of every 341-st Меtn cycle).


 Note. At the calendar calculation  it was conditionally accepted, that the initial durations of solar and lunar cycles (equal accordingly  365,242195 and  29,5305888531 days) do not change during the term of a calendar action application. 


Some additional characteristics of a new Global Calendar are given in the comparative table - .
