This is a plain Kassidorian calender using English letters to spell out the Kassidorian words. This chart is the whole calendar of one Kassidorian year, which is a bit more than 64 and 1/3 Earth days long. Each column is a division of the vak, the word we have translated as week in all contexts but astromonical, where it is the local 'day'. Each row is a 'vak', a period in which the planet rotates on it's axis with respect to 61 Cygni A.
Week Kenduul currently occurs just a bit less than once every 3 years. After 7 or 8 Kenduuls, there is a gap of 4 years before the next Kenduul occurs. The 7's are gradually getting more common, at first contact there are 3 7's for every 8. Before 4200ad. there will be a few times there have been 4 7's before an 8. Over the centuries the slowing of the planets rotation is measured this way.
