st: calculating latitude and longitude of nearby point

Subject   st: calculating latitude and longitude of nearby point

I would like to calculate the latitude and longitude of a point that
is x miles in a given direction from a certain location. For example,
Stata HQ is at 30.55233 and -96.24564. If I were to go 1 mile north,
that point would be at approximately 30.567202 and 96.245539. Is there
a way to do this in Stata? I know there's a way to calculate geodetic
distances between two points, but this would be the inverse. I am only
interested in going up to 10 miles out and all my points are in
continental US.
