Hello, sorry I wasnt sure if this should be in the physics section of homework, but I didn't see anything where the astronomy section was...anyways.

Im reviewing sidereal time systems, so given a right ascention and declination, I need to calculate what time an object is at its highest point in the sky (ie when it crosses the meridian?) How do I do this calculation?
