Angular distance

In mathematics and all natural sciences, the angular distance between two point objects, as observed from a location different from either of these objects, is the size of the angle between the two directions originating from the observer and pointing towards these two objects. Angular distance is thus synonymous to angle itself, but is meant to suggest the linear distance between these objects .
