SUNJS

SUNJS

Name


      SUNJS

Purpose


      Computes geocentric physical ephemeris of the sun.

Category


Calling Sequence


      sunjs, js

Inputs


      js = ephemeris time as Julian Seconds. in
        Delta T = ET - UT which is not completely
        predictable but is about 1 minute now.
        This difference is noticable slightly.

Keyword Parameters


Keywords


        /LIST displays values on screen.
        DIST = distance in AU.
        SD = semidiameter of disk in arc seconds.
        TRUE_LONG = true longitude (deg).
        TRUE_LAT = 0 always.
        APP_LONG = apparent longitude (deg).
