Lucky city

  1. Dec 7, 2014 #1
    People in the past thought that a city which the length of the visible arc of a star's path in that city is longer, that city is the luck city; Now, for a city with a latitude of 35° how much should be the star's declination to be the luck city?

    Longer than what?
    Which star?
    Is that homework?

    longer means the longest arc available. and the star is not important, just the declination is the thing.
