    Re: Windows lunar distance program v.
    From: Paul Hirose

    There's a minor bug in my Windows lunar distance program version In the upgrade to Windows 8 compatibility, I changed the
    internal unit of length from au to km, but neglected to modify the
    horizontal parallax code. So the HP output is incorrectly displayed as
    zero. (The computation of apparent place is accurate and not affected by
    this bug.)
    In this new release, version, that is corrected. Also, the leap
    second at the end of 2016 is included in the leap second file. Another
    small improvement is that extraction of the .zip file creates directory
    Lunar4_0_2_0 by default. I.e., the version number is part of the
    directory name.
    The program is described in my message of last month:
    By modern standards the program is small: only 700 k after installation.
    That includes the entire IAU SOFA library, JPL ephemeris routines, and
    Hipparcos star catalog complete to magnitude 3.0.
