[EDIT: I have found/assembled a copy from an anonymous USNO source. Now available here: http://fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx/g46422]
David Burch published an essay on his blog two days ago noting that the "Air Almanac" for 2020 has still not appeared, and here we are in mid-December. It had been promised in November shortly after the USNO website went dark for unknown reasons. At first I assumed David simply had missed it somewhere, but I have searched various likely places, and it's just not out there. David says he ordered a CD copy from Amazon. We'll see if it's delivered. Of course, this is not a "must have" document, but it does have some nice features. These features are easily duplicated and exceeded in various apps, but still it would be nice to know whether this document is gone for good or just "running late".
For now, I am providing copies of the Air Almanac for the past five years (2015-2019) to serve as a "historical" reference.
