Google marks Leap Day Using a doodle

Google is observing Leap Day now with a doodle. Leap Day, that includes every four years on February 29, is a day detected in various solar calenders for example Gregorian calendar.

Nevertheless, even from the Gregorian calendar, years which are divisible by 100, but not by 400, don’t have a leap day.

The planet’s orbital revolution around Sun takes 6 hours more than 365 days, and Leap Day simplifies this lag and realigns the calendar together with the planet’s place in the Solar System.
