Jupiter Moons

Contributions to this software library are always welcome. Please ensure that you post program listings rather than .raw files. They give a reasonable idea of what your program does without having to load them into a DM42 and you can also include comments in your code. Check out the following link for a decoder/encoder: https://technical.swissmicros.com/decoders/dm42/

You can then copy/paste the listing and post it in "code" tags.

Jupiter Moons

Post by Josef » Wed Sep 25, 2019 10:24 pm

I made a graphical program for calculating coordinates of the 4 greatest satellites of Jupiter ( Io , Europe , Ganymede , Callisto ).

Calculate the positions of the 4 Galilean satellites of Jupiter on 10 October 2019 at 0h 50m 10s UT
10.102019 ENTER
0.5010 XEQ "Jupiter"

STOP - stop the program, you can see Y = DATE DD.MMYYYY, Z = HH.MMSS
<REW - animation rearwards
◼ - stop animation
FRW> - animation forward
HOUR+ - one hour forward
HOUR- - one hour rearwards

I use part of the algorithm from Jean-Marc Baillard.

That is very interesting.
What is the time increment of the Animation?

Great work!

Back again, Callisto seems really to quit Jupiter BUT Ganymede is still there to keep it in he circle ... Try to play at year 5000 ! Amazing !

You did a really great JOB !

Josef,

You know what ?

I did buy my first Calc because of Astronomy : Back in 1977 I buyed a Telecsope and needed to compute stellar/planetes positions and I did have to program some stuffs like you did and I became later on a computer Analyst...

Without my Telescope and my TI-57 and then my HPxx's (HP33, HP34...etc) I would not be here tonight .

Explain that to the "other common people", no way I am afraid ! No way.

Thanks again to mix Astronomy and Programming, Thank You very much.

My last reading : Carlo Rovelli, "The Order Of Time" and still amazed, but not the only last reading(s) ...

Does Time exist ?

When I look at those Jovians satellites I can see much clearer... Look at Callisto :o

No, it just helps in Astronomy :-)
