    Re: Tides by bearing of the moon
    From: Hewitt Schlereth
    Date: 2009 Apr 8, 17:18 -0400

    The method I used to use was to consider that on the day of the full
    moon, the luni-tidal interval listed in Bowditch for a given place
    would be the time of high tide.
    
    From my 1933 Bowditch, the High Water Interval for New London is
    9h30m. So on the  day of the full moon - tomorrow 4-9-09 - high tide
    at New London would be 0930 EST or 1030 DST.
    
    I don't have any tide tables here, so would a kind soul on the List
    look it up and see how old Nathanael did?
    
    Thanks, Hewitt

    which is a better predictor of tide times: the local hour angle of the actual 
    Moon or the local hour angle of the mean Moon (which we can imagine moving 
    along the celestial equator with constant angular velocity)?
