Our calendar is based on 365.25 days and the mayan was based on 360.
The Maya calendar is a system of calendars and almanacs used in the Maya civilization of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, and in some modern Maya communities in highland Guatemala and Oaxaca, Mexico.
The most important of these calendars is the one with a period of 260 days. This 260-day calendar was prevalent across all Mesoamerican societies, and is of great antiquity (almost certainly the oldest of the calendars). It is still used in some regions of Oaxaca, and by the Maya communities of the Guatemalan highlands. The Maya version is commonly known to scholars as the Tzolkin, or Tzolk'in in the revised orthography of the Academia de las Lenguas Mayas de Guatemala. The Tzolk'in is combined with a 365-day calendar (known as the Haab, or Haab' ), to form a synchronized cycle lasting for 52 Haabs, called the Calendar Round. Smaller cycles of 13 days (the trecena) and 20 days (the veintena) were important components of the Tzolk'in and Haab' cycles, respectively.
But even so I measured by my 12x65 trailer too. For 14 years the sun whether in the summer winter fall or spring, the sun has always rose up over the far left side of (not on) trailer. The sun always comes through that bedroom window no matter what time of year its been the 14 years I been here, And this trailer was placed here 14 years ago.

Yeah I know. I watch it come up in the winters more in the south west and in the summers to the north west.
I am saying that in 14 years living here after the Chili quake main big change.. the sun comes over half way over my trailer now instead of staying off to the far left..southwest. The sun stays off that side of the trailer all year round. Not anymore.
OK even so disregarding everyhing about degrees. It's high noon the sun straight up in the sky and the time here 3 PM. Got some explanation for that?
