Transform an FK5 (J2000.0) star position into the system of the
Hipparcos catalog, assuming zero Hipparcos proper motion.

   r5           double   FK5 RA (radians), equinox J2000.0, at date
   d5           double   FK5 Dec (radians), equinox J2000.0, at date
   date1,date2  double   TDB date (Notes 1,2)

   rh           double   Hipparcos RA (radians)
   dh           double   Hipparcos Dec (radians)


1) This function converts a star position from the FK5 system to
   the Hipparcos system, in such a way that the Hipparcos proper
   motion is zero.  Because such a star has, in general, a non-zero
   proper motion in the FK5 system, the function requires the date
   at which the position in the FK5 system was determined.

2) The TT date date1+date2 is a Julian Date, apportioned in any
   convenient way between the two arguments.  For example,
   JD(TT)=2450123.7 could be expressed in any of these ways,
   among others:

          date1          date2

       2450123.7           0.0       (JD method)
       2451545.0       -1421.3       (J2000 method)
       2400000.5       50123.2       (MJD method)
       2450123.5           0.2       (date & time method)

   The JD method is the most natural and convenient to use in
   cases where the loss of several decimal digits of resolution
   is acceptable.  The J2000 method is best matched to the way
   the argument is handled internally and will deliver the
   optimum resolution.  The MJD method and the date & time methods
   are both good compromises between resolution and convenience.

3) The FK5 to Hipparcos transformation is modeled as a pure
   rotation and spin;  zonal errors in the FK5 catalog are not
   taken into account.

4) The position returned by this function is in the Hipparcos
   reference system but at date date1+date2.
