    Re: Friendly challenge : Jupiter Lunar Exercise 09 Feb 2011

    "I first leave to interested readers to find and publish here their own solution of this Lunar", wrote Antoine a couple of days ago. In contrast to the already published computer based solutions including many iterations I thought that I would do my best with Antoine's observed data using the Nautical Almanac and my favourite Burton's Nautical Tables. For the lunar I used Bruce Stark's tables which are very handy.

    My resulting position is 46d43'N, 2d36'W. The latitude agrees with the correct value and the longitude is only 12' off, or 48 seconds of time.

    The solution is shown in attached pdf file.
