2. According to the calendar, the Uposatha days for April are 1st, 14th and 28th.
- The Moon Phases are for the UK, but may sometimes need adjustment to fit the 14/15 day cycle specified by the Vinaya
- Incorrect. The Uposatha days shown for April are 14th and 28th. The previous new moon was on March 30th. The time of sunrise is shown for the first of each month
For example, the actual times and dates for March/April are:
New Moon = March 30th @ 19:46 pm
Full Moon = April 15th @ 8:43 am
New Moon = April 29th @ 7:15 am
Since an Uposatha day is never held on the 16th or 13th day after the previous one, April 15th has to be adjusted to April 14th. This happens to agree with the Forest Sangha calendar, but I calculate the dates based on the Moon Phases
data, which I assume to be scientifically accurate for the UK. I see no good reason to base UK observance days on Burmese or Thai calendars.
