its name became astro and it is on the old backup
written in c. it has old elements for everything. published
Was it rewritten? Your story has it dating at least back to 1966, which
made me think it might not have been C.
elements are now in a different form and a different
base, so it needs updating to bring it into the 21st century.
if all you want is the earth, moon, and sun, then it might
be ok. the earth rotation fudge (delta-t) might need to be
re-estimated to get second accuracy.

As soon as I read this it's been on my mind to ask: Does this program
