Ides Cycle

The second moon appears to complete one orbit every 5.76 Earth Days. This cycle is often used in a similar manner to a Earth week. Additionally, in one day the moon Ides orbits exactly 32 times. That an Ides cycle is useful for keeping tack of the time of day on Didome; 8 orbits separates sunrise to noontime. For convivence the Ides are often grouped by 8 and referred to by the time of day: Morning, Afternoon, Evening, and Night. So if one was asked the time shortly before midnight, one might reply that it is the 69th Ock of the Evening.
