I was going through the book Orbital Mechanics by Howard Curtis and in the book he talks about topocentric horizon frame and its angular velocity about an inertial frame? What does it mean and how do you find its angular velocity? In the book he has just given a direct equation. Can someone tell me how he arrived at it?
