An ephemeris (plural: ephemerides) is a table providing the apparent positions of the sun, the moon, and the planets in the sky at a given moment in time, at a given point on the earth. It also provides data on astronomical phenomena of interest to astrologers such as solar and lunar eclipse, apparent retrogradation, planetary ingress, sidereal time and positions for the nodes of the moon.
