    "Moon Transit": The transit time of a celestial body refers to the instant that its center crosses an imaginary line in the 
    sky - the observer's meridian (noon) - running from north to south. For observers in low to middle latitudes, transit is 
    approximately midway between rise and set, and represents the time at which the body is highest in the sky on any 
    given day. At high latitudes, neither of these statements may be true - for example, there may be several transits 
    between rise and set. The transit of the Sun is local solar (sundial) noon. The difference between the transit times 
    of the Sun and Moon is closely related to the Moon's phase. The New Moon transits at about the same time as the Sun; 
    the First Quarter Moon transits about 6 hours after the Sun; the Full Moon transits about 12 hours after/before the Sun; 
    and the Last Quarter Moon transits about 6 hours before the Sun."High Moon" Transit time is plus minus 3 hours...

    Month reflects moon's orbit around Earth

    FUNdamental Motion of the Sky, No. 2: Month
    A month should really be called a moonth, as it refers to the time it takes for the moon to rotate around the Earth. It would only take 27.3 days to rotate around the Earth, if the Earth didn't move 27 degrees simultaneously in its orbit around the Sun. Since the object the moon circles does move, it takes the moon 29.5 days to complete one cycle. The moon rotates around the Earth in the same direction that the Earth twirls on its axis: east. Thus the moon moves 12.2 degrees (360 degrees divided by 29.5) east each day. My students round the 29.5 to 30 days in a month, then divide 360 degrees by 30 days. This division can be done easily and results in 12 degrees east each day, which is close enough for our purposes.

    Thus the second fundamental motion of the sky is that the moon actually moves about 12 degrees per day east.

    How do astronomers estimate 12 degrees in the sky?
    Degrees in the sky can be estimated. As you already know, from due east to due west is 180 degrees and from the horizon to your zenith (directly overhead) is 90 degrees, so halfway up would be 45 degrees, and one-third of the way up to your zenith would be 30 degrees (astronomers call this the object's altitude). However, here's another way astronomers estimate degrees in the sky. Your fist, vertically at arm's length (thumb on top) covers about 10 degrees of the sky. To prove it, hold your fist out at arm's length so your arm is parallel to the ground. Place your other fist on top of it for 10 degrees. Continue alternating fists, placing one on top of the other, until one of your fists is straight up. You'll notice it took nine fists to accomplish the task; therefore, each fist must be 10 degrees. This technique works for all ages because a smaller fist has a shorter arm. One degree of the sky can be blocked by holding up the width of your index finger at arm's length.
    The next time you see the moon, note where it is in the sky. The next day, at the same time of the day, you'll note the moon moved about 12 degrees east or about one fist plus two fingers east.

    20.8443054757972+ days of error,so subtract 20.8443054757972

    from all GDK answers.check with  

    it gives correct current "lunar" day of the month.

    day 1 was then 21.8443054757972 days into orbit,not 1 day in.

You will be gluttonous and obease and heavy in your beliefs. You will be capable of making plans to ruin organizations. You will be unfaithfull and will cheat on sincere lovers. You will enjoy debates and arguments. You will be enthusiastic and aggressive in finding faults. You will be egoistic and will always give importance to yourself. You will be self-centered and unsacrificing. You will have an uncompromising attitude. You will be spineless as a jelly fish. Your weakness is from wavering thoughts, impatience, unbridled anger, a quarrelsome and aggressive nature and have blind faith in devil music.In essence someone had to be the worst,(it's you).

If you (someone other than the page owner) are reading this, the owner of the page has not quite set it up correctly, however, the page should still work normally! **

    Other observers also have their own follow-up pages, check out this list of links.

    A PDF document describing the use of the MPES is available.

    Information on any known problems with this service is available.

    Astrometric observations of any of the following objects should be sent directly to Updated orbits will be available automatically through this page.

    Display ephemerides or summary

    The following objects are available:

      (300) Geraldina

      (2589) Daniel

      (17036) Krugly


    By default, ephemerides are geocentric, begin now and are for 20 days at 1 day intervals.

    Start date for ephemerides: Number of dates to output

    Ephemeris interval: Ephemeris units: days hours minutes seconds

    For daily ephemerides, enter desired offset from 0h UT: hours

    Observatory code:

    Display positions in: truncated sexagesimal or full sexagesimal or decimal units

    Display motions as: "/sec "/min "/hr °/day

    Total motion and direction Separate R.A. and Decl. sky motions Separate R.A. and Decl. coordinate motions

    Suppress output if sun above local horizon

    Suppress output if object below local horizon

    Generate perturbed ephemerides for unperturbed orbits

    Also display elements for epoch

    Format for elements output:

    none MPC 1-line MPC 8-line
    SkyMap (SkyMap Software) Guide (Project Pluto) xephem (E. Downey)
    Home Planet (J. Walker) MyStars! (Relative Data Products) TheSky (Software Bisque)
    Starry Night (Sienna Software) Deep Space (D. S. Chandler) PC-TCS (D. Harvey)
    Earth Centered Universe (Nova Astronomics) Dance of the Planets (ARC) MegaStar V4.x (E.L.B. Software)
    SkyChart 2000.0 (Southern Stars Software) Voyager II (Carina Software) SkyTools (CapellaSoft)
    Autostar (Meade Instruments)

    If you select 8-line MPC format, you may display the residual block for the objects selected:

    Show residuals blocks. Show only residual lines containing observations from code . If you select 8-line MPC format the elements will be displayed with the ephemerides. If you select any format other than 8-line MPC format, only the elements are returned. In such cases your browser should download the elements file and save it to your local disk.

    Supplementary Information

    The summary lists the current J2000.0 coordinates, visual magnitude and solar elongation of the selected minor planets, as well as information on the date of last observation (where available), forthcoming opposition data and details on the latest published orbit. The opposition data lists the date of the next opposition and the declination and visual magnitude at that time.

    The list of available formats for the orbital elements was correct at the time this document was prepared. It is possible that the Minor Planet Center now supports futher formats. If you select the summary option, any newly supported formats will be listed.

    The elements supplied are the latest published elements for the specified objects. Elements will be found even if the designation you enter is a non-principal designation in an identification or if the object has been numbered.

    Ephemerides can be supplied for objects with only Väisälä elements, but the elements themselves are not supplied.

    The ephemerides supplied for minor planets and comets are perturbed (if the orbits were computed with perturbations) and can be generated over the time period 1900 to 2040. Objects with unperturbed orbit solutions will return unperturbed ephemerides. Objects must be identified in images by their motion, not by their apparent closeness to a predicted position.

    The time-scale of the supplied ephemerides is UTC.

    If you desire a topocentric ephemeris, enter your observatory code in the appropriate box. When local circumstances are displayed, the azimuths are reckoned westwards from the south meridian.

    As an aide-mémoire, the packed form of the object's designation (as used on the astrometric observation record) is displayed immediately above the ephemeris.

    This service utilises the Minor Planet Ephemeris Service, courtesy of the IAU's Minor Planet Center. It has been made possible by Process Software Corporation, and their excellent VMS Web server, Purveyor.

    The calculations will be performed on the Tamkin Foundation Computing Network.   entire list  minor planet tracking  add custom co-ord's, check mark-echo elements
