Parallax is a way of measuring the distance of one object to another.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

By taking the distance of an already known object, say the Sun, and drawing a line to the object.

Then drawing another line between you and the object in question.

The angle you get is the Horizontal Parallax angle.

Using the Trigonometric Identities the distances will present themselves.

My question is where is the error coming from that why would need to correct it?
