CdC - Updated satellite positions

Recommended Posts

The latest release of CdC V4.3-4194 now includes satellite data from Naif spice kernel. The precision is now just a few meters because this same computation is used to drive the spacecrafts.

(Most (all?) other planetarium software still use the Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Almanac calculations which are now pretty dated. I found Saturn's Phoebe position was not correct, leading Patrick to update CdC. I'm appreciative of his hard work and continued support for Cartes du Ciel)
