"It's About Time" (AstroClock JavaScript Program)

Post #1by jeffmack » 28.01.2011, 00:34

"Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?"

You will - after trying out my real-time JavaScript program AstroClock at: http://www.jeffmack.net/astroclk.html . Just enter your (or any) longitude and time zone offset, and you'll know the time in more ways than you probably care to know! :lol: (Be sure that your system clock and time zone settings are correct first).

AstroClock currently utilizes the 77-term IAU2000B nutation model, but soon I hope to upgrade it to utilize the more accurate 488-term NU2000K nutation model.

As promised, I have upgraded my real-time JavaScript program, AstroClock, to utilize the more accurate 488-term NU2000K nutation model!
