VizieR Online Data Catalog: Precession Formulae and Mean Elements for Moon and Planets (Simon+ 1994)
The files given here refer to the paper A&A 282, 663 (1994) which concerns the following topics: - numerical expressions for the precession quantities, - mean elements for Moon and planets, from Mercury to Neptune, - formulae for computing approximate ephemerides for Moon and planets. The files concern only precession and approximate ephemerides of the planets. The numerical expressions of precession are yielded by files : prctable.doc, prcbdl94.f, prcupdt.f. The formulae for computing approximate ephemerides of the planets are available in file : planetap.f. There is no file for the mean elements of Moon and planets because these quantities are of a more specific use. Approximate lunar ephemerides may be computed from tables in: Chapront-Touze M., Chapront J. (1991) "Lunar Tables and Programs from 4000 B.C. to A.D. 8000" Willmann-Bell, Inc., Richmond, Virginia, USA. (1 data file).
