To measure passages of time, priests studied the Sun, Moon, and Venus.  Mayas had a calendar with 18 months with 20 days, plus 5 unlucky days which made up the days in a year.
The Mayas also had a religious calendar of 260 days.  Each day was given a name and a number.
A Maya year is divided into 19 months, designated Uinal. Each has a name and a picture.  Day names were called kin.
