Abstract:

As a byproduct of the preparation of solar and lunar coordinates for use in trajectory calculations, a time history obtained of the radial distance and declination of the moon and its phases. Results are intended for use as an aid in the selection of launch dates. Results are presented for the years 1961 to 1971 in a form which permits a rapid approximate determination of the combination of declination and lighting for any calendar date. The information provides a time basis for entering tables of the moons coordinates to obtain more precise data for use in computing insertion conditions. Author
