|An ephemeris is a tabulation of computed positions and velocities (and/or various derived quantities such as right ascension and declination) of an orbiting body at specific times. The plural form of ephemeris is ephemerides. In the context of this web-site, solar system bodies are implied.|
The list of defined terms to the left is by no means exhaustive with
respect to the general subject of solar system dynamics.
The terms listed are thought to be those more commonly used on our site
and thus appropriate for inclusion on this page.
