Today is Day 59 of 2015

59

is the smallest number which when divided by 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 leaves remainders of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, respectively.

divides 616161... 61 (repeated 29 x n times, n integer), but 61 divides 595959... 59 (repeated 30 x n times, n integer).

= 17 + 19 + 23 (sum of consecutive primes)
= 302 - 292 = 30 + 29
= 23 + 23 + 23 + 23 + 33

594 = 1334 + 1344 - 1584

One day on planet Mercury lasts about 59 Earth days.

Many thanks are extended to Archimedes' Lab for their information.
