QVSOP gives the positions for the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune for the years 1998 to 2025. It uses the polynomial expressions from Astronomical Algorithms, 2nd ed., by Jean Meeus.

QVSOP may be used free of charge in any programs you might want to write. Should you modify/expand it, please make sure you do not distribute copies with modified ROM pointer order, or the two first program packages that use it, Urania and StarMaHP (since version 2.051 for HP48 and 3.1 for HP49), will most certainly crash. Details can be found in the source code.

Unlike the rest of Urania,
