On a world globe, notice the latitude and longitude lines and then imagine them projected onto the night sky. Longitude would be right ascension and latitude declination which is measured as degrees north and south while RA is measured as hours minutes seconds. Hopefully these links will clear it up even more.<br /><br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_ascension<br /><br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declination <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><strong>My borrowed quote for the time being:</strong></p><p><em>There are three kinds of people in life.
