There are several types of lunar month. The term lunar month usually refers to the synodic month because it is the cycle of the visible phases of the Moon.. Most of the following types of lunar month, except the distinction between the sidereal and tropical months, were first recognized in Babylonian lunar astronomy.. Sidereal month.

Upon popular demand, the Chapronts also published ELP and a book, Lunar Programs and Tables with a truncated version of their theory and with programs, that could be used by historians and amateur astronomers to compute the position of the Moon themselves. Jean Meeus used the ELP in his popular book Astronomical Algorithms (, ).

Applications of lunar theory. Applications of lunar theory have included the following: In the eighteenth century, comparison between lunar theory and observation was used to test Newton's law of universal gravitation by the motion of the lunar apogee.; In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, navigational tables based on lunar theory, initially in the Nautical Almanac, were.
