Greenwich Line: An imaginary line that separates east from west in the same way that the Equator separates north from south. Its path is determined by the location of an historic telescope, the Airy Transit Circle

Equator Line : An equator is an imaginary line around the middle of a planet or other celestial body.The Earth is widest at its Equator.

Sky Maps: A chart showing the positions of celestial bodies. These were used by old civilizations as a guide to travel in the sea. Declination is the equivalent of latitude in sky maps.Right ascension is the equivalent of longitude in sky maps.

Latitud: the angular distance from the equator, and a given point on Earth's surface

Longitud: angular distance east or west on the earth's surface, measured by the angle contained between the meridian of a particular place and some prime meridian

Algebra connection One use of mathematics in astronomy is counting entities, sources, or objects in the sky. It can also be used to calculate the distance between objects in space. In class, we counted the different stars and we are able to calculate the distance between them.

Longitude and Latitude may be used as a coordinate planeThe Greenwhich line would be the y axis, while the ecuator would be the x axis.
