Yes, I was thinking just that. It made a complete rotation around the sun on the 14th of June also, and the 7th of September … relative to those days. Why do we care about the rotation today?

The best new year's eve ever was Y2K when everyone was waiting to see of all the computers in the world would crash. Now that's entertainment.



^ Does Spock's opening line sound familiar? :lol:

Since Earth reaches perihelion on Sunday, January 5, 2020 at 07:48 UT*, that seems like an equally reasonable time to observe the advent of the "New Year".

(*That's 23:58 PST on Saturday, 2020/01/04 for people in California, by the way.)
