For globes other than Earth, {{coord}} does not assume a specific reference system (in contrast with Earth's WGS84). Since the template defaults to east longitude, the |W| direction must be specified for globes that measure longitude westward. At the present time, only limited mapping is available for Mars and the Moon and none for other extraterrestrial bodies. For celestial coordinates, use {{Sky}} instead.
