    Re: For which celestial bodies is it relevant to display the lunar distance?

    Dear Tony,

    See the attachment for a pdf with lunar distances this May, with one-hour intervals. The layout is more or less the same as for Steven Wepster's tables with 3-hour intervals. For the proportional logarithms Steven Wepster's tables only show decimals to the right of the decimal point. For one-hour intervals the change in lunar distance during the time interval is smaller than for 3-hour intervals, of course, and therefore the Proportional Logarithms are larger, some of them being larger than 1. Therefore, I decided to show the complete value of the proportional logarithm and not just the decimals to the right of the decimal point.

    Any suggestions are welcome!I will publish these monthly tables for 2018 on my website celnav.nl sometime this week.

    Best regards,

    Jorrit
