- SIDERIAL TIME -

(THE BASIS OF CORRECTION FOR HOUR OF THE DAY)






The above chart depicts the Siderial Clock in relation to the Zodiac, hours being 1 – 24. (Note.- There is no A.M. or P.M. in Siderial Time) . We work from Siderial1 noon to Siderial Noon.

The Zodiac being 360 degrees, divide the 24 hours into 360 degrees and it equals 15 degrees. Therefore, if 1 hour equals 15 degrees, each sing being 30 deg. equals 2 hours.

At the moment that our Sun is Long 0 it is 12 noon and at the moment the Sun is 0 of Aries it is Siderial Noon. As illustrated in the above chart the Sun in relation to our Earth is at Long 0 and in relation to the Zodiac is Aries 0. Therefore we have Solar Noon and Siderial Noon at the identical moment.

(Cont’d overleaf)




Note: If Students cut out these two illustrations they can be used as demonstrated by Miss Nagel, to show how the Sun in its movement round the Zodiac is always 4 mins., or 1 degree ahead of the Earth in relation to their respective positions in the Zodiac.







THE BASIS FOR CORRECTION FOR HOUR OF THE DAY (Cont´d).



However, because of the tilt of our Earth on its axis, as it revolves around the Sun is loses 1 deg in 24 hours and also 4 mins in 24 hours, or, using our Astrological terms, the Sun gains 1 deg. in 24 hours and also 4 mins. in 24 hours.

Therefore 4 mins in 24 hours equals 1/6th. min or 10 seconds in 1 hour.

Consequently, when charting the Heavens for any hour of the day the Basis of Correction for Hour of the Day is as follows:-



(a). Add time elapsed since previous noon.

(b). “ 10 seconds for each hour elapsed since noon.



Example 1.- Siderial Time for London, 18th.October 1951. – 10 p.m.

Referring to Raphael´s Ephemeris, Siderial Time for previous noon which is 12 noon 18th. October) is

13 hrs. 44 mins. 40 secs.

Add time elapsed since noon

10 0 0

10 seconds for each hr. elapsed since noon.

1 40

Required Siderial Time =

23 46 20

Nearest S. T. (London)

23 45 19

Error

1 1

Example 2. Siderial Time for London 11th. January. 1951 – 7 a.m

S.T. previous noon (which is 10th. Jan)

19 hrs. 16 mins. 48 secs.

Add time elapsed since noon

19 0 0

10 secs for each hr. elapsed since noon.

3 10

Required Siderial Time =

38 19 58

(Minus 24 hrs) =

14 19 58


Nearest S. T. (London)

14 18 37

Error =

1 21
