    Dear Paul,

    Thank you very much for your very interesting solution. I printed it, as I earlier did for the one sent by Frank, and I am keeping it in my archives folder altogether with the solution I derived through the use of Frank's On-Line Computer.

    ******* ******* ******* ******* ******* ******* *******

    Interesting to see our various results :

    Further to my initial post ( http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=115625 ) , I published in ( http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=115633 ) my Actual position which was :

    Steady Observer N4642.9W00223.7


    Frank's results (http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=115630) show :

    Lunar Distance UT = 18h07m30s , N4642.4W00226.0


    With Frank's On Line Lunar Computer (http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=115633) I derived the following position :

    Lunar Distance UT = 18h07m27.0s , N4643.1W00226.2


    You just published (http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=115660) your own results as :

    Lunar Distance UT = 18h07m38s , N4643.04W00229.1


    I had earlier found (bottom lines of document "115633.one-solution-to-the-jupiter-.pdf" published as Attached File in http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=115633)

    Lunar Distance UT = 18h07m33.8s , N4643.2W00228.1

    Last note : For this solution, I performed my own computations with TT-UT=67.2s


    Thank you again for your Kind Attention and Warmest Congratulations for your very interesting reply and solution.

    Best Friendly Regards


    Antoine M. "Kermit" Couëtte
