    This generates a random global position and three associated GPs with their 
    respective GHA,Dec,Ho in that order in rows.
    I believe latitudes from the program are equally probable in the
    intervals [0, 10] and [80, 90]. If that's true, the density of the
    random points increases from the equator to the pole. That may be
    undesirable for generating sight reduction practice problems, or data
    for a Monte Carlo experiment.
    To achieve constant density, generate latitudes from arc sines of random
    numbers in the interval (-1, 1).
