"precession of the equinoxes" is apparently considered a dated term, now more properly referred to as axial precession, or (in the context of astronomy) simply "precession" .
( See the first paragraph of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axial_precession )
Diff:
- 歲差 岁差 [sui4 cha1] /the precession of the equinoxes/
+ 歲差 岁差 [sui4 cha1] /(astronomy) precession/
