Mario Belloni and
The Local Coordinates model displays the position of a star in local (Altitude/Azimuth) coordinates. The horizon is shown along with the four cardinal directions (N, E, S, and W). The latitude of the observer is set at 35.5 degrees which sets the location of the north celestial pole (teal) relative to the northern horizon. The position of the star can be changed by using the Altitude and Azimuth sliders.
