    Astronomical Phenomena
    From: John D. Howard

    Hello all,

    I recently became aware of another free booklet from the US Naval Obsertivery called Astronomical Phenomena.

    Download as a pdf document - lots of information.  It is published by year starting in 2015.  I have 2016 and 2017.  The best thing for me was a two page table of the sun's declination and the equation of time for each day of the year.  I printed out the two pages onto one sheet of paper and now have a quick and dirty solar almanac for 2016 ( and 2017 ).  Put it in your sextant box with the Ix haversign tables and yo have a small, emergency kit.

    Also in the small booklet ( 95 pages ) is information on the transit of Mercury, the occultion of the Moon and different stars,  times of planet transits. etc.  All in all a handy ( free ) download from the USNO

    John H.
