Do we have a coordinate system for extraterrestrial (dang that's a hard word
to type!) locations?  I don't have any star-mapping software, so I have no
idea if there are any standards for that (I love Star Trek tho'...;).
I wonder how it would handle still-expanding space... <g>


A good place for U.S. folks to find their coordinates is
http://tiger.census.gov/

(with an interesting note on their faq page about GPS and nat'l security...;)
