Leap Year Starting On Tuesday

A leap year starting on Tuesday is any year with 366 days (i.e. it includes 29 February) that begins on Tuesday, 1 January, and ends on Wednesday, 31 December. Its dominical letters hence are FE, such as the years 1828, 1856, 1884, 1924, 1952, 1980, 2008, 2036, 2064, 2092, 2104 and 2132 in the Gregorian calendar[1] or, likewise, 1964, 1992, and 2020 (the current year) in the obsolete Julian calendar. Any leap year that starts on Tuesday, Friday or Saturday has only one Friday the 13th; the only Friday the 13th in this leap year occurs in June. Common years starting on Wednesday share this characteristic.

Julian Calendar

Like all leap year types, the one starting with 1 January on a Tuesday occurs exactly once in a 28-year cycle in the Julian calendar, i.e. in 3.57% of years. As the Julian calendar repeats after 28 years that means it will also repeat after 700 years, i.e. 25 cycles. The year's position in the cycle is given by the formula ((year + 8) mod 28) + 1).
