  4. 4. The most useful aid in visualizing any time and date problem and shows the relative positions of the meridians and hour circles involved in a particular problem. </li></ul>TIME DIAGRAM<br />

  7. 7. Local Hour Angle (LHA)- is measured from the local meridian westward through 360<br />
  8. 8. Greenwich Hour Angle (GHA) is measured from the Greenwich meridian westward through 360<br />
  9. 9. Sidereal Hour Angle (SHA) is measured from the first Point of Aries westward through 360.<br />
  10. 10. Meridian Angle <br />(t) is measured <br />from the local <br />meridian <br />eastward or <br />westward <br />through 180 and<br /> labeled E or <br />W to indicate the <br />direction of <br />measurement.<br />
