Abstract : In the course of determining solar eclipse circumstances for ionospheric and atmospheric studies, it became apparent that the solar and lunar longitude and the lunar parallax developments were not of sufficient accuracy. Consequently, terms with coefficients down to and including 0.025 seconds in longitude, and down to and including 0.001 seconds in parallax, have been restored.
