Phases of the Moon since the Dawn of Time

Well, almost. NASA has a web site that provides you with such juicy tidbits as: on what dates could you have experienced a full moon in the year 1857 BCE? So you're writing a novel about ancient Egypt and your main character gazes up at the sky - you want your moon to be accurate, right? No random phase for you, no siree. The tables also provides dates of eclipses, both solar and lunar. You could build your whole novel around just that - it's a gold mine! Even if you just want to find celestial events that took place in your lifetime.
