A degree (or in full degree of arc), usually symbolized by the symbol °, is a measurement of plane angles, or of a location along a great circle of a sphere (such as the Earth or the celestial sphere), representing 1/360 of a full rotation.
A second of arc or arcsecond is a unit of angular measurement which comprises one-sixtieth of an arcminute, or 1/3600 of a degree of arc or 1/1296000 (approximately 7.7×10-7) of a circle. It is the angular diameter of an object of 1 unit diameter at a distance of 360×60×60/(2pi) (approximately 206,265 units), such as (approximately) 1 cm at 2.1 km, or, directly from the definition, 1 astronomical unit at 1 parsec.
