File Information
Description

PDF document and a MATLAB script named loccult.m that can be used to predict the local circumstances of lunar occultations of a planet or star. The source ephemeris for this routine is a JPL binary ephemeris file. This application uses several functions ported to MATLAB from the Fortran version of the NOVAS (Naval Observatory Vector Astrometry Subroutines) source code developed at the United States Naval Observatory (www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/software-products/novas). JPL binary ephemeris files for Windows compatible computers can be downloaded at www.cdeagle.com.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.12 (R2011a)
Other requirements Requires platform specific MICE mex file and de421.bsp binary ephemeris file. Both are available at naif.jpl.nasa.gov/naif/toolkit_MATLAB.html
