[writing] Weird things you learn while working on book proposals

There is a very significant difference between Julian days and Julian dates.

For example, today’s Julian day is 319. Today’s Julian date is 2454785.5, ignoring the fractional adjustments since midnight UTC.

That is all. You may shop as usual. No need to return to your homes.
