# The spacecraft

The spacecraft spotted a radar device at altitude angle alpha = 34 degrees 37 minutes and had a distance of u = 615km from Earth's observation point.
Calculate the distance d of the spacecraft from Earth at the moment of observation. Earth is considered a sphere with a radius of 6378km.

Correct result:

x =  368.3833 km
