 I was trying to create a table of the past 30 autumnal equinoxes, however I just can't seem to do it. If I try any thing fancy, Alpha just returns nearest autumnal equinox and that's it. I've tried so far things like: autumnal equinox [1988.. 2018.. 1] and even went half-Mathematica with this one: Table[autumnal equinox n, {n, 1988, 2018}] Am I missing something? Am I taking too many liberties here? Please someone help.

 If you have Mathematica you could get the list through repeated calls to Alpha, as follows: WolframAlpha["autumnal equinox " <> IntegerString[#], "Result"] & /@ Range[1988, 2018] Unfortunately this times out if you try to do it in the Programming Lab.John
