# SDSS. Google Sky and DeCaLs

(1) Please go through following image Possible Super Red Giant? However sdss shows it as galaxy! Am I missing something.

(2) Google Sky shows object in latitude and logitude format like this. Is there any way to convert those numbers to Right Ascension (ra) and Declination (dec) numbers or opposite of that so that I can spot google sky data on SDSS and SDSS object on Google Sky?

• Very unclear what you are asking. Incidentally afaics Google is displaying locations in RA and dec, but as your question is so unclear I am not sure I am looking at the same numbers as you. – adrianmcmenamin Feb 24 '16 at 20:44
• I dont know how the question is unclear, for first part I am clearly asking that the marked object on SDSS shows as galaxy while it appears to be a huge red giant. For second part If you visit first link from SDSS you can clearly see ra and dec values in the address bar however with google sky link that is not the case. It shows latitude=69.82067508546967 & longitude=-36.44439697265625 – user3137471 Feb 24 '16 at 21:33

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has saturation limits at around 13th or 14th magnitude. You are looking at $\phi$ 1 Cancri, which is a 6th magnitude star. It is hardly surprising that SDSS fails to morphologically classify it correctly.
