    Re: Going Loony with Lunars

    In my previous note, I forgot to mention that the variable names in each of the lunars test case sets I attached are the variables that the authors of those clearing methods used.

    One variable, Relative Bearing Angle (RBA), used by John Karl in his book "Celestial Navigaiton in the Age of GPS" was added to the methods by other authors. I found it useful to get some idea what the two lunar-distant bodies azimuth differences were. RBA is the angle between their veritcal circles.

    The three test case files are straight text, mono-font with no tabs.
