When using a Tracking Software to view an object such as the ISS, would I be correct in saying that if the object is in the Northern Hemisphere then the Lattitude data would have a + sign?
Also, If the object is in the Northern Hemisphere would the Declination data still have a + sign?
I am using Orbitron at the moment and when tracking the ISS the data for Lattitude shows a + when in the Northern Hemisphere but the Declination data shows a - sign.
I thought that anything above 0 degrees (ie, Northern Hemisphere) showed a + and anything below 0 degrees (ie, Southern Hemisphere) showed a - sign irrespective of whether it was Lattitude or Declination.
Am I understanding this data incorrectly?
