Astro: Celestial Coordinates

BarefootJoey Updated   
Celestial coordinates are a system of measurements used in astronomy and astrology to describe the positions of celestial objects such as stars, planets, and constellations. There are several different celestial coordinates, including right ascension (RA), longitude, latitude, declination, and altitude. Each coordinate has its own astronomical or astrological significance, as outlined below:
Right ascension (RA) is a coordinate used to describe the position of an object in the sky along the celestial equator. It is measured in hours, minutes, and seconds and is analogous to longitude on Earth. RA is significant in both astronomy and astrology because it allows astronomers and astrologers to accurately locate celestial objects in the sky.
Longitude is a coordinate used to describe the position of a planet or other object in its orbit around the Sun. It is measured in degrees and is significant in astronomy because it allows astronomers to accurately predict the positions of planets and other objects in the solar system.
Latitude is a coordinate used to describe the position of an object in the sky relative to the celestial equator. It is measured in degrees and is significant in both astronomy and astrology because it helps astronomers and astrologers to determine the positions of celestial objects in the sky.
Declination is a coordinate used to describe the position of an object in the sky relative to the celestial equator, similar to latitude but measured in degrees north or south of the celestial equator. It is significant in astronomy because it allows astronomers to accurately locate objects in the sky.
Altitude is a coordinate used to describe the height of an object above the horizon. It is measured in degrees and is significant in both astronomy and astrology because it allows astronomers and astrologers to determine when objects will be visible in the sky and at what angle.
In astrology, celestial coordinates are used to create maps of the positions of celestial objects. This indicator plots the corresponding celestial coordinate
values for each planet, moon, or sun and labels key turning (pivot) points with a date (& optional time). Hover over labels for additional information.
