On to the matter at hand: the implications of the research in this post I have not yet been able to process fully - guess I'll leave that for a few future posts.
I really dig this info you're about to see!
Here is yet another proof that Daniel 9's 70 weeks is to be understood as literally 490 days in the future. Matt 24
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.Dan 9:26
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.
What are the days of Noah (the days of the "flood")? 17 Iyyar to the next year's 27 Iyyar. (May -ish)
What is the winter sabbath day that brings "great tribulation"/ (cuts off the daily sacrifice)? The 10th of Tevet, the day when Babylon attacks. The "abomination of desolation" is the army of the king of the north/ Babylon surrounding Jerusalem. Here is the parallel verse in Luke 21
20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.The armies start cutting off the food supply (and also the source of animals for the sacrifice) to Jerusalem, which culminated in the sacrifices being stopped at 17 Tammuz (July-ish). This action started at 10th of Tevet.
Ezekiel 24:1-14 Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth [day] of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, write thee the name of the day, [even] of this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day. And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set [it] on, and also pour water into it: Gather the pieces thereof into it, [even] every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder; fill [it] with the choice bones. Take the choice of the flock, and burn also the bones under it, [and] make it boil well, and let them seethe the bones of it therein. Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose scum [is] therein, and whose scum is not gone out of it! bring it out piece by piece; let no lot fall upon it. For her blood is in the midst of her; she set it upon the top of a rock; she poured it not upon the ground, to cover it with dust; That it might cause fury to come up to take vengeance; I have set her blood upon the top of a rock, that it should not be covered. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great. Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the bones be burned. Then set it empty upon the coals thereof, that the brass of it may be hot, and may burn, and [that] the filthiness of it may be molten in it, [that] the scum of it may be consumed. She hath wearied [herself] with lies, and her great scum went not forth out of her: her scum [shall be] in the fire. In thy filthiness [is] lewdness: because I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee. I the LORD have spoken [it]: it shall come to pass, and I will do [it]; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent; according to thy ways, and according to thy doings, shall they judge thee, saith the Lord GOD.
If you have seen predictive programming movies or books about "Christmas-time" alien/ demonic attacks, this is what it is referring to.
The "great tribulation" starts on the 10th of Tevet. Now add 490 days to get the end of the "days of Noah" - 27 Iyyar!
Look for yourself - this is just an example: Saturday, January 7th dusk, 2017 to May 12 dusk, 2018, (some years it works, some not when there is an Adar II intercalation leap month): Add or subtract to a date ? results

Here is some more info on the days of Noah - you can see that the last 56 days correspond to the last 56 days of the 70 weeks (ie after 62 weeks, from the 63rd to end of the 70 weeks = 8 weeks.) http://www.ahavta.org/Commentary%20Y-1/Y1-06.htm
I have gone through over 30 years of Tevet 10's in the Hebrew calendar, and read about Jewish fasting matters about the 10th of Tevet: it just doesn't fall on a Sabbath/ Saturday. The most logical inference about this is that the flight that should occur would be on a Sabbath and then on Sunday would be the attack itself, since the sabbath flight has to give people time to escape from it. In the near future, the 10th of Tevet on January 7, 2017 on a Saturday dusk/ January 8, 2017 day of Sunday is the nearest, most logical fulfillment of this "winter/ sabbath" interpretation.
