My professor ask me if I could make program which would draw celestial 
sphere with (celestial) measurements on it to show celestial coordinates 
of some (celestial) body.

My idea was that I could draw sphere in mathematica, and with celestial 
coordinates given by user input the program would draw celestial curves 
(declination, ascension...).

  Can I draw curves on sphere in Mathematica?

Is this possible in new version of Mathematica (5.1 and higher)?
Because GeometricalGeodesy (a new Mathematica application package) is 
now available, and I don't know if some of this problems can be solved 
without this new package.
