The Al-Kanish calendar (named after The great city of Al-Kanish) begins counting years from the moment the city disappeared from the surface of Astrohanasia. This event is known as the Event Horizon. Years before this date are labeled BD (Before the Disappearance). Years after this date are AD (After the Disappearance). Years prior to the year 1 BE count down, getting smaller as they get closer to the time of the Event Horizon (just as they do in the Gregorian calendar).
There are 4 seasons and 365 days in the Al-Kanish year.

|Season of the Crab||Winter||Water||89-176|
|Season of the Effigy||Spring||Fire||177-264|
