Phaethon Ephemeris - 2015

Phaethon is a hypothetical point used in astrology. For more information see:

Interview with Bernard Eccles

Bernard was one of the authors of the classic astrology book called Dark Stars. He co-authored it with Eric Morse. They described it as the remnants of an exploded planet or second sun. It is associated with the asteroid belt.

The following positions are determined using the more precise method of calculating planetary positions outlined in Peter Duffett- Smith's book Practical Astronomy With Your Calculator. The routine was converted into a simple program written in BASIC.

I have checked the output against the ephemeris provided by Raymond Henry (Eric Morse) and Bernard Fitzwalter (Bernard Eccles) in Dark Stars, the book where they discuss Phaethon. The positions correlate with those in Dark Stars, for the period 1900-2003, within about 15 minutes of longitude, and generally no more than 30 minutes of longitude.
