Abstract:

In the 2006-2009 triennium, the International Astronomical Union IAU Working Group on Numerical Standards for Fundamental Astronomy determined a list of Current Best Estimates CBEs. The IAU2009 Resolution B2 adopted these CBEs as the IAU 2009 System of Astronomical Constants. Additional work continues to define the process of updating the CBEs and creating a standard electronic document.
