Edition 10 of the Astronomy On-line Newspaper

Greetings from Ireland

Even though our school has received many replies to our request for time-signatured INSTRUMENTALLY RECORDED POSITIONAL DATA for the SUN (i.e ecliptic longtitudes and semi-diameters), all of them are telling us to look up the 'theoretical' figures to be found in the Astronomical/Nautical Almanacs.

While the school sought in Homepage to make the distinction between the theoretical and the INSTRUMENTALLY RECORDED figures, it would seem that we have not communicated our request for the latter with sufficient clarity.

Towards that end we would dearly welcome an opportunity to re-iterate that what we want is time-signatured INSTRUMENTALLY RECORDED POSITIONAL DATA for the apparent path of the SUN as seen from the Earth ,(i.e what the Astronomical Almanac itself would term 'ecliptic longitude' and 'semi-diameters')

A sincere Celtic greeting to all who read this.

From Padraig O Searcaigh.
