Sine is opposite over hypotenus. Tangent is opposite over adjacent. If you are using delta longitude and latitude, you should use tangent, not sine.
I was just going the long way around the barn...calculating the hypotenuse first. But actually I'm glad you made me look twice...math was off but not for that reason, I dropped a decimal point. Angle is less than 1 degree So movement last 24 hours was 270.
Hey, the last couple hours the cloud tops are getting colder, and eye is getting smaller (maybe I better steer clear of numbers for awhile, and just use adjectives).
