    "For the lunartics on this list, here's something of a challenge (and others should switch off now). What will be required is a computer-program that can calculate positions of bodies in the sky back to 200 years ago."

    And several people replied to George with suggestions for software that he might use, but I don't think that's what he was trying to say. Software to do this is widely available. George, I am nearly certain, already has access to software that does these calculations. I believe he was trying to say that if any of the list's lunatics wanted to work on this problem that *they* would require software capable of calculating positions of heavenly bodies in 1803.
