Background and History

From the Dragonlover's Guide to Pern, a Turn is the Pernese term which correlates to the Terran "Year". see Inconsistencies Years started to be called by some in Red Star Rising/Dragonseye,

The planet Pern makes a single revolution around its sun, Rukbat, in approximately 362 Pernese days. Every sixth turn is a "leap turn" and one extra day is added to the turn.  For comparison, a Pernese turn is approximately 366 Terran days long.
