Remarks
NOVAS-COM objects of class Site contain the specifications for an observer's location on the Earth ellipsoid. Properties are latitude, longitude, height above mean sea level, the ambient temperature and the sea-level barmetric pressure. The latter two are used only for optional refraction corrections. Latitude and longitude are (common) geodetic, not geocentric.
