RE: [thefixedstars] Re: Parans
- where can i find that at? I was looking through Brady's site on Starlight but I don't remember seeing the newsletter mentioned.
I am mostly trying to find out if there is some standardized formula I can use to calculate star phases and such. I'm the sort that will sit up for hours every night burning holes in my brain doing the hard math calculations, haha.
Thanks so much for your input, both of you.
