HE 2007/2008 apparition of Mars is close at hand, and we now begin the customary listing of the necessary elements of the Ephemeris for the physical observation of Mars from 1 January 2007: This is the first (only upto 28 February) of the series. The data are listed for every day at 00:00 GMT (not TDT). ω and φ denote the longitude and latitude of the sub-Earth point respectively. The symbols λ, δ and ι stand for the areocentric longitude of the Sun, the apparent diameter and the phase angle respectively. From this apparition, we newly add the column of the Position Angle Π of the axis rotation, measured eastwards from the north point: This is useful to determine the north pole direction from the p . The apparent declination of the planet is also given at the final column. The data here are basically based on The Astronomical Almanac for the Year 2007.
