    Sure enough, this went just to Geoff.  I hereby send it to
    the list, even though Geoff has already posted the whole
    thing...

    Geoff Butt has been calculating NA data, and writes:

    I wonder if this is because the published NA adjusts the apparent
    position of planets for the "center of illumination", rather than
    the center of mass.  For example, when Venus shows a crescent,
    the NA will tabulate the planet's position as being somewhat closer
    to the sun than it actually is.
