ephemeris time definition

  • noun:
    • A highly precise astronomical system for the measurement period on the basis of the amount of world's orbit, but in training counting on lunar observations and a precise lunar ephemeris.
    • A former standard astronomical time scale meant to over come the disadvantages of irregularly fluctuating mean solar time, superseded into the 1970s.
    • A modern relativistic-coordinate time scale.
    • (astronomy) a measure period defined by world's orbital motion; terrestrial time is mean solar power time fixed the irregularities of this Earth's movements
    • A highly precise astronomical system for the dimension of the time on the basis of the amount of world's orbit, but in practice depending on lunar observations and an exact lunar ephemeris.
    • A former standard astronomical time scale meant to over come the disadvantages of irregularly fluctuating mean solar power time, superseded within the 1970s.
    • a contemporary relativistic-coordinate time scale.
    • (astronomy) a measure period defined by Earth's orbital movement; terrestrial time is mean solar time corrected for the irregularities of Earth's movements
    • A highly accurate astronomical system for measurement period on the basis of the amount of Earth's orbit, but in rehearse counting on lunar observations and a detailed lunar ephemeris.
    • A former standard astronomical time scale designed to overcome the disadvantages of irregularly fluctuating mean solar time, superseded when you look at the 1970s.
    • A modern relativistic-coordinate time scale.
    • (astronomy) a measure of the time defined by world's orbital movement; terrestrial time is mean solar power time corrected for the irregularities associated with the Earth's motions
    • a very accurate astronomical system when it comes to dimension period on the basis of the amount of world's orbit, however in rehearse depending on lunar observations and an exact lunar ephemeris.
    • an old standard astronomical time scale designed to conquer the downsides of irregularly fluctuating mean solar time, superseded into the 1970s.
    • a contemporary relativistic-coordinate time scale.
    • (astronomy) a measure of the time defined by world's orbital motion; terrestrial time is mean solar time fixed the problems associated with Earth's movements
