December 21st, 2012 - End of the Mayan Calendar

December 21st, 2012 - The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar used used by the pre-Columbian Mayan civilization, among others, finishes a "great cycle" of thirteen "b'ak'tuns" (which means periods of 144,000 days each) since the mythical creation date of the calendar's current era.

On this day the Long Count date at creation - written in modern notation, equivalent to August 11, 3114 BC in the proleptic Gregorian calendar - is repeated for the first time in a span of a little over 5,125 solar years. The finishing of this cycle and the repetition of the previous Creation's Long Count ending date have been central to 2012 millenarianism. Academic researchers have not concluded that the ancient Maya themselves attached similar significance to this point in time.

* Side Note : December 23, 2012 - An alternate date for the completion of the thirteenth B'ak'tun in the Long Count calendar - calculated using another version of the GMT correlation which is supported by a few Mayanist researchers.
