To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoTotal rubbish the definition of Julian date is:
The Julian Day Number (JDN) is the integer assigned to a whole solar day in the Julian day count starting from noon Universal time, with Julian day number 0 assigned to the day starting at noon on January 1, 4713 BC, proleptic Julian calendar (November 24, 4714 BC, in the proleptic Gregorian calendar), a date at which three multi-year cycles started (which are: Indiction, Solar, and Lunar cycles) and which preceded any historical dates. For example, the Julian day number for the day starting at 12:00 UT on January 1, 2000, was 2,451,545.
A modified version of the Julian date denoted MJD obtained by subtracting 2,400,000.5 days from the Julian date JD, The MJD therefore gives the number of days since midnight on November 17, 1858.
There are inherent problems with conversion into Excel due to the fact that has a leap year error (in 1900??) also astronomers who use JD have a year zero which does not exist in the normal civil calendar which goes from 1BC to 1AD with no year zero. Historically correct but bad for calculations
