Declination and Right Ascention

  1. Jan 25, 2010 #1
    I have two questions I cannot figure out:

    How is declination measured in the celestial sphere, in comparison with how terrestrial latitude is measure on earth

    How is RA measured in the celestial sphere, in comparison with how terrestrial longitude is measure on earth.

    Thanks!!
