Thanks very much to Susanne Daood for locating Lawrence Resseguie for
me. He was most amazed that (1) he had given me the wrong phone
number (he misstated one digit), and (2) that I could find him by
posting a plea on Usenet.
Dr. Resseguie's interest in my sunrise/sunset program turns out to be
of more than idle curiosity. He's with the Ob/Gyn department and is
studying whether the start of labor is related to the time of sunset.
So he pulled the equation for sunset out of my program -- but was
slightly messed up because I had subtracted twelve hours in order to
produce a pseudo-PM time for sunset. He had constructed his own fix,
which was not dissimilar to the one I posted yesterday.
Dr. Resseguie found that there is no significant relationship between
onset of labor and sunset.
I'm an amateur astronomer primarily interested in the computational
aspects of orbital mechanics and positional astronomy. Finding an
astronomy application for health-services research (the field in which
I work) is quite rare. Please let me know of any others.
