Extract

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has recently produced a new integrated planetary and lunar ephemeris DE403/LE403. This ephemeris spans the interval JED 624912.5 (December 2, −3002, Julian) – JED 2817104.5 (November 14, 3000, Gregorian) and is an improvement on DE102 (Newhall et al., 1983) and DE200 (Standish, 1990). This integration carries the Cartesian states of the Sun, Moon, and planets, along with the three Euler angles describing the lunar physical librations.
