Sky maps, Longitude, Latitude, Greenwich & Equator

GREENWICH

the equator

Conclusion it is necessary to be able to plot and find coordinates to find places on a map, or to make one. Wether they include x and y axis’ or the equator and the prime meridian, they give you an idea of where things are, or where the earth is located in space and how far away thing are around it

SKY MAP A SKY MAP IS A PLANAR REPRESENTATION OF AREAS OF THE SKY SHOWING POSSITIONS OF CELESTIAL BODIES.

Users can view the whole star sky at once and zoom in to view areas in greater detail

LONGITUDE THE ANGULAR DISTANCE OF A PLACE EAST OR WEST OF THE MERIDIAN AT GREENWICH USUALLY EXPRESSED IN DEGREES AND MINUTES.

LATITUDE THE ANGULAR DISTANCE OF A PLACE NORTH OR SOUTH OF THE EARTH'S EQUATOR

• is an imaginary line that divides the Earth into the North Hemisphere and South Hemisphere. •located at 0 degrees latitude. •The equator is, in general, warmer and more humid than most other places in the world. •has a constant 12 hours of day and night •home to the majority of world's rainforests and biodivercity • the Earth bulges slightly around the middle,so the equator is slightly longer than an imaginary circle drawn between the Poles.self

Longitude measures east to west and is considered to measure 0 degrees at the prime meridian (Greenwich) which is similar to the y axis that we use when making a graph to plot points. Latitude measures from north to south and is considered to measure 0 degrees at the equator which is similar to the x axis. There are numerous lines of both longitude and latitude (meridians and that imaginarily run across the earth forming a type of grid, very similar to the ones that we make in algebra class, when we are plotting points on a graph with and x and y axis except these wrap around the earth instead of being flat. Sky maps, lines of latitude and lines of longitude are used so that we can have a reference point that gives you an idea of where things are. In astronomy sky maps make it easier to locate stars and have an idea of where the earth is in space.

The central meridian time which all time zones are set. Also known as Coordinated Universal Time.(C
