I'm trying to find the resulting location of a point on a sphere in spherical coordinates or Cartesian. Based on velocities from the perspective of an object on the sphere.

So given the:

location on the sphere (in spherical or Cartesian)

zy - plane rotation of the point

up direction of the point is always away from the origin

velocity from the perspective of the object

How do I find the resulting new location on the sphere. I am not sure what math to use, or what keywords to search in google.

Made an illustration below.
