The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:
Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Aur
The DMS coordinates are: 8°8'59.6'' N 171°10'7.3'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 8.1499°
LngO = 171.16869°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -8.1499°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 171.16869 - 180° = -8.83131°
Since the longitude is positive, we subtract 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would sum 180° for the same reason.
The antipode of Aur is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-8.1499, -8.83131)
In DMS format: 8°8'59.6'' N 171°10'7.3'' E .
