    Re: Lunar altitudes
    From: Fred Hebard

    I thought I'd post a graph of Gregory's lunar listed by George
    Huxtable, despite the injunction against attachments.  The line is a
    fit of a straight line to the data, which had an R-square of 0.9990.
    
    To fit the data on my spread sheet, which knows about hours, minutes
    and seconds, but not degrees, minutes and seconds, I subtracted 24
    degrees from the distance.  Also, since George had bragged about the
    data being so good, I assume that his data point at 22h 39m 00s 29d 43'
    50" was a typo, where the 43' should have been 45', and changed that
    point accordingly.
    
    To all us nascent lunarians, when our data on land look like these, we
    should be as ready as we can be for sea!
