Glide Reflection in Spherical Geometry...

Hi guys,

Was not quite sure which forum to put this in, so thought I'd go with "other".

In spherical geometry, any isometry of S^2 is one of the following:

1) The identity
2) A rotation with 2 fixed points on S^2
3) An antipodal map
4) reflection in a great circle
5) A glide reflection.

But what is a glide reflection of R^3 when restricted t the sphere?

Many thanks. x
