    Astronomical Algorithms C++ source code
    From: Andrés Ruiz
    Date: 2006 Dec 12, 09:35 +0100

    When I programmed the first version of my Nautical Almanac in late 1998 using the 2nd edition of the famous Astronomical Algorithms by Jean Meeus, the work was hard because the 2nd edition do not give us the source files. Of course I only wrote the code for the Sun, Aries, Moon, all the planets, ( now Pluto has lost his status) and the FK5 stars.

     

    Now You can find the source code in the web, and you don’t have to write it, only the main program.

     

    A collection of freeware C++ classes which provide an implementation of the algorithms as presented in the book "Astronomical Algorithms" (2nd Edition) by Jean Meeus is available at: http://www.naughter.com/aa.html

     

     

    Even though the source is available, the books are necessary:

    Astronomical Algorithms. by Jean Meeus, 2 Ed edition (December 1998). ISBN: 0943396638

    Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Almanac. USNO.

    Introduction aux éphémérides astronomiques - Supplément explicatif à la Connaissance des Temps

    Enjoy!
