I'm writing a story about Mars and I'm really confused as to how one should use the word 'Sol when talking about the passage of time there. For example, Would one say to a colleague: "Today is Sol 345, Jack"
From the Wikipedia page on Martian timekeeping:
“Sol” is often used as a direct replacement for “Day” when concerning Mars. Mission duration for Mars missions is measured in Sols, so saying “Today is Sol xyz” would be normal, but I’m not sure if anyone would say “what a wonderful Sol tomorrow is going to be”.
