    Default "moons" as in, time measurement

    I tried to figure this out, but I'm still having trouble.
    When Drustan talks to Gwen about how many "moons" have passed, does one "Moon" equal one month or three months and why. I know it has to do with the phases of the moon but I can't understand it.

    Does anyone know?

    Solar time, which is based on the motion of the Sun, is not the only way of measuring time, however. One might keep track of the regular appearance of the full Moon. That event occurs once about every 29.5 solar days. The time between appearances of new moons, then, could be used to define a unit known as the month.

    Yes, a month = a moon. I think that's how we got the name, but I'm not sure.
