Not everybody agrees with that. In fact, I'm going out on a limb and say that most people don't agree with that. The USNO site is strictly opinion, when it comes to the millennium, and is not official.
I'm hoping that this does not turn into an interminable debate on the subject. Perhaps we should start a new thread--and I think it should be only new info not already presented at the USNO site that Dana_Mix linked.
By the same reasoning that the second term of a president's reign begins with year 5, or the second week in the month begins with day 8.
But. The second year does begin with year 5, and the second week with day 8. Did you mean year 6 and day 9?
