    Dear Dave,

    Oh ! Oh ! Things start looking VERY interesting !

    So many contributions from various NavList Members using so many different methods !!!

    Thank you so much !

    Needless to say, your post and diagram already tagged and filed in my "09 Feb 2011 JUPITER Ile d'Yeu Lunar". This one becoming pretty thick now ...

    So , welcome to the Club with Frank, Paul, Lars and Kermit !

    BTW ... and since you too definitely seem to have more than adequate computing power both in your mind (and at your finger tips too as it seems), how about solving my last " 12 Feb 2011 Unorthodox Jupiter Lunar from a moving platform" (http://www.fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx?i=115688) ? Should I be the only one to have solved it ? Hopefully not ... So, I am standing by ... :-) . One initial clue for the time being : this second Lunar took place in the very same area as the first one 3 days earlier which you just so brilliantly solved. I know, I know ... it was not a difficult guessing exercise ...

    And also ... yes, Jupiter angles (very much almost) to center and not to Limb. Actually I am used to observe/compute the center of "phased planets" (or what my eyes let me believe them to be as far as observations go) and in Jupiter's case, such phase effect is totally insignificant.

    Thank you and Congratulations again !

    Best Regards from


    Antoine M. "Kermit" Couëtte
