Example 6 Math Calculations To Correct The Sun And Moon To Go With Example

(You may use a calculator for these calculations)

UT 5:30 on July 13, 1977 Sun July 14, 1977 21° Cancer 26'45" July 13, 1977 20° Cancer 29'30"

57'15" = daily motion x 60 (to get seconds) 57 x 60 = 3420" add the remaining seconds + 15"

Daily motion in seconds 3435" -f 24 hours = 143 seconds per hour Multiply by 5 1/2 (or 5.5) hours in the day (U.T.=5:30) 143 x 5.5 = 786.5 seconds. To convert this back into minutes divide by 60 or 786.5 4- 60 = 13'(13x60=780) 786.5" - 780.0"

= 6.5" The correction reads 13' 6.5" (Round up to 137".) Sun of July 13, 1977 20° Cancer 29'30"

add the corrections_13'07"

Corrected Sun 20° Cancer 42'37" or rounded up to 20° Cancer 43' (Computer says the same — yeah!)

(Make life easier on yourself by dropping the seconds on the Moon) Moon July 14, 1977 25° Gemini 05' or 24° Gemini 65' July 13, 1977 13° Gemini 11' 13° Gemini 11' 11° Gemini 54' 11° Gemini 54' (Since you cannot deduct 11 minutes from 05 minutes, you 'borrow' 1 degree or 60 minutes and convert 25 Gemini 05' to 24 Gemini 65') For ease of calculations, convert 11 Gemini 54' into minutes 11 degrees x 60 = 660 minutes Add + 54 minutes

714 minutes of daily motion To find the motion per hour: 714 -r 24 = 29.75 or not quite 30 minutes Multiply this by 5 1/2 (or 5.5) 5.5 x 30 = 165 minutes To convert this back into degrees and minutes divide by 60 165 -f 60 = 2° 45' (60 x 2 = 120' and 45' left over)
