    The Bright Star Catalogue is a star catalogue published by Yale University Observatory and known formally as the Yale Catalog of Bright Stars; it lists all stars brighter than magnitude contained in the Harvard Revised Photometry Catalogue. The first edition appeared in and the most recent (fifth), in electronic format, in zon. The subset of alignment–stars in the Almagest (Alm. VII, 1) are constructed to form lines of three stars. Thus, the astrometrical information in this text is only the relative position of three or four stars to each other. Interestingly, some of those stars quoted from Hipparchus are not in Ptolemy’s star catalogue.

    Basics of Positional Astronomy. The observer is located at the centre of his "celestial sphere" with zenith Z above his head and the horizon Sun, Moon or any other celestial body can be identified by the two coordinates altitude h and azimuth alpha (horizontal coordinates). Solar Fire is an exciting culmination of years of hard work and creativity. This astrology program for Windows was first produced in and has been expanding ever since to become a world leader.

      His observations with it in –1, ‘On the Declinations of some of the Principal Fixed Stars,’ communicated to the Royal Society on 26 June (ib. p. ), gave decisive proof of deformation through age in the Greenwich quadrant (Bird's), and rendered inevitable a complete re-equipment of the Royal Observatory. manual). The FK5 Catalog only contains stars, all of them rather bright. The right ascensions and declinations of the stars in the FK5 Catalog have been especially carefully measured and re-measured so that they can be relied upon as standard reference points for the measurement of the positions of other objects in the sky.

Catalogue of declinations of the latitude programme stars (KŠZ) by Sofija N. SadzМЊakov Download PDF EPUB FB2

Each city has a unique latitude and longitude. Take Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for example, which is located at latitude +° north, longitude ° west. Or Wonglepong, Australia, situated along that continent's east coast at –° south, ° east. A negative sign in front of the latitude indicates south and a positive sign north.

A star catalogue (Commonwealth English) or star catalog (American English), is an astronomical catalogue that lists astronomy, many stars are referred to simply by catalogue are a great many different star catalogues which have been produced for different purposes over the years, and this article covers only some of the more frequently quoted ones.

Improvement of declinations and proper motions of the latitude programme stars compiled at the Engelhardt Astronomical and the Poltava Gravimetrical Observatories. Urasina, I. AbstractAuthor: I.

Myalkovskij. We used the data on latitude variations obtained from observations with 10 classical photographic zenith tubes (PZT) in order to improve the Hipparcos proper motions in declinations μ_{δ} for stars.

Part of observing programmes, carried out during the last century for the purpose of studying the Earth's rotation, were realized by using PZT by: 2. Latitude Latitude - Astrology Encyclopedia Definition of Latitude There are three kinds of Terrestrial latitude: astronomical, geographic and geocentric.

(1) Astronomical: the angle between the direction of the plumb-line and the plane of the Earth's equator. This is the fourth ofseven volumes in a program of systematic reclassification of the Henry Draper stars on the MK system and contains all HD stars between δ = °.0 and ° The stars were classified visually on objective-prism plates taken with the Michigan Curtis Schmidttelescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory.

The 4°+6° prisms yield a dispersion at Hγ of Å/mm. Catalogue has been formed with the results of the visual observations of stars of the SRS Programme with declinations ° > δ > ° carried out with the Grubb Parsons Meridian Circle of the Instituto y Observatorio de Marina from through The Catalogue lists the positions for the mean epoch of observation referred to the equinox This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.

I have a latitude / longitude / time of a location on Earth, I need to calculate the Right Ascension / Declination that's overhead at the time provided. So far I've found out that Right Ascension is the same as the sidereal time for the location but I haven't found any information about declination.

Latitude is the angular measurement that can be determined from the parallel line drawn from either sides of the equatorial line. The equator lines represent 0 degree. And in north and south parallel lines makes an angle up to 90 degree. Long term examinations of latitude and time variations were used to form the Earth Orientation Catalogue (EOC-2), aimed at a more accurate determination of positions and proper motions for the stars.

Catalogue of the Tables with examples 3/5(1). To figure out your latitude, all you have to do is estimate the angle between Polaris and the horizon due north from where you are standing. For example, at Earth’s north pole, Polaris is directly overhead, which is 90 degrees above the horizon.

This is also your latitude. At Earth’s equator, Polaris is on the horizon, or 0 degrees above it. The second way of specifying star positions is the equatorial coordinate system.

This system is very similar to the longitude-latitude system used to specify positions on the Earth's surface. This system is fixed with respect to the stars so, unlike the altitude-azimuth system, a star's position does not depend on the observer's location or.

This table is the catalog of variable stars, updated and completed with the Name-Lists of Variables Stars Nos. After the publication of Volume III of the 4th edition of the GCVS, the subsequent Name-lists with numbers from 67 to 77 contained only names of variable stars in the GCVS systems, together with their coordinates and variability.

It contains, steering by the sun, How to check a compass, finding he North Pole, How to find boat speed, star declinations for 27 North Hemisphere stars and many southern stars, finding latitude, latitude by Polaris, emergency almanac for the sun, a N(x) table, and an arc to time table.
