      Computes geocentric physical ephemeris of the sun.


Calling Sequence

      sunjs2, js


      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


        /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).
        APP_LAT = 0 always.
        J2000_LONG = J2000.0 longitude (deg).
        J2000_LAT = 0 always.
        TRUE_RA = true RA (hours).
        TRUE_DEC = true Dec (deg).
        APP_RA = apparent RA (hours).
        APP_DEC = apparent Dec (deg).
        LAT0 = latitude at center of disk (deg).
        LONG0 = longitude at center of disk (deg).
        PA = position angle of rotation axis (deg).
        CARRINGTON = Carrington rotation number.


Common Blocks


      Notes: based on the book Astronomical Algorithms
        Chapter 24, by Jean Meeus. Good to about 0.01 degree.
        Coefficients based on above reference.
        If no arguments given will prompt and list values.
