Computes low-precision ephemerides of the sun, moon, and planets, based on the algorithms described in Low-Precision Formulae for Planetary Positions, T. C. Van Flandern and K. F. Pulkkinen, The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series, 41:391-411, November 1979. To the precision of implemented algorithm (one arc minute), these coordinates can be considered to be true-of-date. |
