Using the Biblical Hebrew calendar, Nisan 17 starts at sunset on Saturday March 26 and ends at sunset on Sunday March 27. Using the modern Hebrew calendar, Nisan 17 begins at sunset on Sunday April 24 and ends at sunset on Monday April 25. So to know the timing of the crash, we have to know which calendar God is using.
Ancient Israel based their calendar on observations of the moon with each new moon marking the beginning of a new month. Today, a remnant of devoted Jews still rely on this practice to identify their holy days, but most have adopted the modern Hebrew calendar, which is inaccurate by design, moving certain holy days so they don’t occur on certain days of the week, like the Sabbath (Source: Wikipedia).
Some Historical events have happen on Nisan 17.
