SUNDISK

Name


      SUNDISK

Purpose


      Compute solar disk coordinates as seen from anywhere.

Category


Calling Sequence


      sundisk,time, elng, elat, hlng, hlat

Inputs


      time = UT time (JS or date/time string). in
      elng, elat = Ecliptic long,lat of observer (deg). in

Keyword Parameters


Outputs


      hlng, hlat = Heliographic long, lat of out
        solar disk center (deg).

Common Blocks


Notes


      Notes: example time in js:
        js0=dt_tm_tojs('2005 aug 18 3:13')
      To test find central disk heliographic coordinates
      as viewed from earth using sunjs, which also gives
      also central heliographic as seen from earth:
        sunjs,js0,app_long=elngs,lat0=hlat0,long0=hlng0
      Earth's longitude is 180 deg from sun's longitude:
        elnge = elngs - 180.
      Using sundisk:
        sundisk,js0,elnge,0.,hlng,hlat
      Compare: help,hlat0,hlat,hlng0,hlng
