Seite 53 - Subtract the true altitude of the sun's centre from 90°, and the remainder will be the sun's true meridian zenith distance, which is to be called north or south according as the observer is north or south of the sun at the time of observation.
Seite 23 - Rule. — Find the latitudes of both places; if both be north, or both south, their difference will be the answer; but if one be north and the other south, their sum will be the answer. Exercise.— What is the difference of lat. between Philadelphia and Petersburg? Ans., 20 degrees. Between Madras and Waterford? Am., 39° 13'.
