    Re: Lunar distance this Sunday

    Frank,
    
    When you say "average" you have to specify over what is this average taken.
    Over the day of the Easter Sunday after tomorrow (lunar distance certainly changes during the day),
    or over all Easter Sundays from the very first one until the present time ?
    
    :-)
    
    Alex.

    Subject: [NavList] Lunar distance this Sunday
    
    This Sunday, April 16, at Greenwich noon, the Moon will be about 122� from the 
    Sun. This got me thinking... what is the average lunar distance (elongation 
    of the Moon from Sun) on Easter? The image below will explain why this is on 
    my mind.
