Explanations of the symbols

An ephemeris (plural: ephemerides) is a table with the daily positions[1] of the planets. Older ephemerides often showed the positions at noon; modern ephemerides show the midnight positions of the planets, Chiron and the Lunar Nodes. In ephemerides of minor planets and asteroids, the weekly or monthly position is usually given.

There exist also graphic ephemerides[2] which make it easy to follow at one glance the movement of a planet over a long period.
