    Re: Right Ascension.

    Thanks to Peter Fogg and |Henry Halboth for explaining the astrological
    implications of "oblique ascension".
    
    Am I right in thinking, then, that the star that was rising at the moment
    and place of one's birth was regarded as important by astrologers?
    
    For a particular position on the Earth's surface, it seems to me that all
    the stars that were rising at a particular moment would share the same
    oblique ascension. Have I got that right?
    
    Not that I'm attempting to steer Nav-l into discussing the nonsenses of
    astrology. Honest.
    
    George.
