    Re: Lunar tables for month of Brumaire, year IX

    Wouldn't these tables be for the Paris meridian, at about 2°20' East of Greenwich?

    Here are some tables of predicted lunar distances from the Connaissance des Temps (the French equivalent of the Nautical Almanac and Astronomical Ephemeris) for the months of Brumaire and Prairial of the year IX of the French revolutionary calendar. Here's the challenge: what are the dates and UT equivalents by the modern calendar? And how accurate are these tables?
