Kiev Ephemeris

part of the amateur almanac

Birmingham Central Reference Library, as part some mysterious rationalisation, has failed to stock the Astronomical Almanac for some years now. Vasyl Y. Choliy at the University of Kiev produces an almanac using the same underlying series. A recent addition has been the ‘amateur almanac’, an hourglass chart showing the main events throughout the year.

The osculating elements for finding the positions of the planets from a Kepler ellipse are included as well, I shall perhaps get round to updating my MS Excel spreadsheet with these elements soon.
