I think phase angle should probably be a separate page, it isn't referred to that often however... Dexterwk (talk) 16:56, 5 September 2014 (CDT)

I'm not sure how the in game Kerbal Kalendar works : orbital period having 426.08 days, are there bisectile years every 12 years, or is it not perfectly related to orbital period? If someone know, it may worth be adding here. --Kesa (talk) 08:03, 23 January 2015 (CST)

I'd say those are simply unrelated. A new Kerbal year doesn't begin at the same time every year but 0.08 days later. As we don't have to celebrate it, that shouldn't be a big problem. — xZise [talk] 09:47, 27 January 2015 (CST)

Kerbal Calendar

This section contains incorrect information - Kerbal days as in 1.2 are based on the rotational period of Kerbin relative to the Sun, not to the stars as described. It can be easily checked by observing different celestial objects pass the meridian and writing down the time. Noon at the KSC always occurs roughly at 5:44 no matter what year it is, while the time when some star passes an observer's meridian is always different as the stellar day is less than a minute shorter, so if a star passes the KSC at 2:14 on day 1, on day 26 the same start will pass at about 1:53.
