Possible values:

  • Mueller1893 Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Ephemeris, 1961
  • AstrAlm1984 [Astronomical Almanac 1984] and later. These give V (instrumental) magnitudes.
  • ExpSup1992 [Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Almanac, 1992] (algorithm contributed by Pere Planesas, Observatorio Astronomico Nacional)
  • ExpSup2013 [Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Almanac, 3rd edition, 2013]
  • Generic Visual magnitude based on phase angle and albedo. Details:
  • J. Meeus "Astronomical Algorithms" (2nd ed. 1998, with corrections as of August 10, 2009) p.283-286.
  • O. Montenbruck, T. Pfleger "Astronomy on the Personal Computer" (4th ed.) p.143-145.

    Parameters
    algorithmthe case in-sensitive algorithm name
    Note
    : The structure of algorithms is almost identical, just the numbers are different! You should activate Mueller's algorithm to simulate the eye's impression. (Esp. Venus!)
