Solar eclipse of July 2, 2019

Tomorrow (July 2), a dramatic total solar eclipse — the only one to take place during 2019 — will darken skies over South America, providing viewers with a spectacular view of the sun as the moon crosses in front of it and casts its shadow on the ground below.

Full Moon - July 16

July 2019 lunar eclipse

A partial lunar eclipse will take place on 16 and 17 July 2019. The Moon should be about half-covered by the Earth's umbral shadow at maximum eclipse.

uposatha is to be kept the 8th, 14th and 15th of each lunar fortnight. not just on the moon phases themselves
this calendar looks reliable to me,
https://forestsangha.org/system/resourc ... sgZ7hXR_ys
but every time the full or new moon occurs on the 15th day (see bottom right corner of each month) you are to observe that day and the day before it. you only add 1-3 days of uposatha per month and you keep it closer to how it was to be kept in suttas

if anyone can tell me with a good amount of certainty which days are considered 'special observance days' according to https://suttacentral.net/sn10.5/en/sujato
or https://suttacentral.net/sa-2.46/en/bingenheimer i will greatly appreciate it!
16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)

I doubt anyone could do that with any degree of certainty. As far as I know, all that can be said with certainty is that:

1. The Tipiṭaka tells us nothing about the meaning of pāṭihāriyapakkha.
2. The Saṃyutta and Aṅguttara commentaries give us two quite different accounts of it.
3. The sub-commentaries offer no resolution of the discrepancy in the commentaries' accounts.
4. In the Asian Theravadin cultural milieu knowledge of the significance of pāṭihāriyapakkha is not present even in folk memory, let alone in any living observance.

And more speculatively...

5. The fact that pāṭihāriyapakkha gets mentioned about forty times in the commentaries but only twice in the sub-commentaries might be taken as suggestive evidence that the decline of this observance took place some time between the composition of these two bodies of texts.
“Keep to your own pastures, bhikkhus, walk in the haunts where your fathers roamed.
If ye thus walk in them, Māra will find no lodgement, Māra will find no foothold.”
— Cakkavattisīhanāda Sutta

:anjali:
uposatha is supposed to be kept the 14th and 15th of the lunar fortnight, so according to my calendar that is september 12 and september 13
16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)
