After one month of dating

common way of teaching the lengths of the months in the English-speaking world.

The nones always occur 8 days (one Roman week) before the ides, i.e., on the fifth or the seventh.

All months landing on a knuckle are 31 days long and those landing between them are not.

When the knuckle of the index finger is reached (July), go back to the first knuckle (or over to the first knuckle on the other fist, held next to the first) and continue with August.

The date and time of this actual observation depends on the exact geographical longitude as well as latitude, atmospheric conditions, the visual acuity of the observers, etc.
