Sorry,

my fault, I "redefined" azimuth. As I found on 
<http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.html#Notes> "_Azimuth_ is the 
angle along the horizon, with zero degrees corresponding to North, and 
increasing in a clockwise fashion".

I posted the angle between the two lines from both points to the center 
of the earth.
