    Default Antipodes question

    I'm trying to determine an exact antipode for the following coordinates: 8°57’33”N 152°03’40”E

    Am i right in thinking the antipode to that is: 8°57’33”S 27°56’20”W

    thanks

    Yep. The formula is
    new latitude = - old latitude
    new longitude = 180° + old longitude = - (180° - old longitude)
    (and a - in front means S becomes N and W, E, and conversely).

    Cheers!
