I like to use time diagrams to visualize the relationship between Longititude, LHA, GHA.
Why is it that the azimuth angle, Zn, for a celestial body, in this case the sun, is not descernable on the time diagram?
I'm speculating it might have something to do with measurements that can be represented wth two dimentional drawings and the three dimentional nature of the Zn; but, that is only a guess. I still can't conceptionalize any diffrence in the application.
I have encluded a drawing to help represent my question.
Thank you for your help.
