Long Ascension Signs, a group of constellations (signs) that takes a long time when the sign ascends from the horizon because the ecliptic is more perpendicular to the horizon. Short Ascension sign is contrary. The ascension time is shorter because the ecliptic inclines to the horizon. These differences are depending on latitude. Closer to the equator, smaller differences of the time.
