Bug Description

2. MINOR BUG: The Location option (F6) is available only for Earth. For all other bodies (selected and moved to by Ctrl-G) no location coordinates are settable, and the value displayed at the lower left of the screen is “-“ as is to be expected. Presumably the location is the center of the selected body. However, a return to Earth with another Crtl-G operation leaves the location value unset and in a seemingly indeterminate state. In fact it has returned to the last set location on Earth, only the value has not been updated in the lower left corner display (it is still “-“). BTW, I really like the “Spaceship AAA -> BBB” annotation during any Ctrl-G transition!

Some non-Earth places you can found in the bottom of list for locations. ;)

True, and for all non-Earth bodies, there is no defined Location per se on these heavenly bodies, I accept all that... but, when returning back to Earth, the location back on Earth (as reported at the lower left corner) should not be indeterminate. And in fact, it is not --- the location happens to be the location we switched over from, and so should/could be indicated on the lower left caption. A minor point, I agree.
