Daniels used to say to people: "When you are on your package tour to Mars you need a watch like this, and when using the telephone for long distance calls, you could switch the chronograph into sidereal time to cut your bills by 3.

The moon altitudes are observed in combination with star observations, from which sidereal time is obtained.
This shows the sidereal time (the right ascension of objects on the meridian) at midnight.
In 2014 Jiapei Dai [1] reported evidence of anisotropic Brownian motion, and in 2015 Felix Scholkmann [3] detected a sidereal time dependence, indicative of a process driving the preferred Brownian motion diffusion direction to a star-based preferred direction.
2002) at the retrograde diurnal frequency by removing a constant part which would lead to a big diurnal signal and by using a simple formula [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], where [phi] is the Greenwich sidereal time.
He goes on to discuss research relating psi success to local sidereal time as well as the possible mechanisms underlying these results, such as atmospheric disturbances.
We formally call this 13:00 sidereal time, but Ottewell suggested giving to each sidereal hour a name that makes it more memorable and easier to distinguish from the others.
Cahill (Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia) suggested that it would be interesting to analyse if the observed periodicity is associated with the solar or the sidereal time (i.

While trying to understand the physical mechanisms of information transfer in anomalous cognition (AC), I analyzed published information on remote viewing and ganzfeld responses in relation to local sidereal time (LST), that is, the position of the subjects on the earth relative to the fixed stars in the sky.
z]--right ascension of the zenith--is equal to local apparent sidereal time and S is Greenwich apparent sidereal time of the observation epoch.
This was established by detecting times delays between wave forms of 10-20 seconds for travel times Adelaide to London, and Perth to London, with that travel time variation following the earth's rotation with respect to the RA and Dec that had been reported in earlier experiments [4,5], and which displayed the sidereal effect, viz the earth time of the earth rotation phase was essentially fixed relative to sidereal time, i.
Thus one can calculate the sidereal time and then set the circle, but it is usually simpler to aim the telescope at a star of known RA and then adjust the circle.
