I'm stuck on this multiple choice question:
Which of the following could be the equitorial co-ordinates of a star that rises to the south of east when viewed from 48 degrees north latitude, and 88 degrees west longitude?
a declination 60, right ascension 13 hours
b declination 30, right ascension 6 hours
c declination -30, right ascension 1 hour
d declination -60, right ascension 20 hours
I was hoping that someone could tell me the answer and how to come up with it. I am very confused about right ascension!© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:44 pm ad1c9bdddf
See, the southern side rising stars will be either c or d.
Now, viewing ...
A declination for the right ascension is examined. The equatorial coordinates of the stars are given.
