    Frank, Sorry, but I don't understand what you are saying:

    I read this message. In it you said:
    
    >This web tool is doing relatively little calculation. The positions of
    >the Sun, Moon, and planets are stored in a ten megabyte database to the
    >nearest arcsecond. These positions are originally from the JPL numerical
    >integrations, so
    >they are intrinsically very good.
    
    But where did you get this database from?
    And where can I get this database from?
    Except by programming Meeus's many pages formula.
    
    Alex.
