How to calculate the altitude of the Moon?
With the known latitude coordinate of the observing position, how to find the altitude of the moon when it is high, i.e when it crosses the local meridian?
Thanks :) But, I'm looking for a mathematical approach as it was asked in one of my astronomy homeworks.
If it is homework, shouldn't you be attempting to research the answer yourself, or figure it out for yourself? The point being to help you comprehend what is going on, not just obtain an answer?
