Upon popular demand, the Chapronts also published ELP and a book, Lunar Programs and Tables with a truncated version of their theory and with programs, that could be used by historians and amateur astronomers to compute the position of the Moon themselves.

Jean Meeus used the ELP in his popular book Astronomical Algorithms (, ). Additional Physical Format: Online version: Airy, George Biddell, Sir, Numerical lunar theory.

There are several types of lunar month. The term lunar month usually refers to the synodic month because it is the cycle of the visible phases of the Moon.

Most of the following types of lunar month, except the distinction between the sidereal and tropical months, were first recognized in Babylonian lunar astronomy. Sidereal month. The period of the Moon's orbit as defined with.

A giant impact of a Mars-sized body with the Earth at about Ga is the most widely accepted theory for the formation of the Moon, winning over the competing theories of co-accretion with the Earth and capture by the Earth (Canup and Asphaug ; Shearer et al.

).The numerical models simulating the impact scenario provide results consistent with. Perturbation theory has its roots in 17th century celestial mechanics, where the theory of epicycles was used to make small corrections to the predicted paths of planets.

[ citation needed ] Curiously, it was the need for more and more epicycles that eventually led to the 16th century Copernican revolution in the understanding of planetary orbits.

The book "Intervention" comes up with the date by relating it to a number related to the moon, and the unusual numerical facts related to the moon.
