LATITUDE & LONGITUDE FROM THE NOON SUN
by John Karl

At last, a celestial navigation book that depends only on the concepts of latitude and longitude, there’s no need for spherical geometry, calculators, trigonometry tables, or mysterious “assumed” positions in this method of celestial navigation. In just eleven short pages, you’ll be able to find your latitude and longitude from the noon sun with just this booklet, a sextant, and a watch – and using only simple arithmetic. With the addition of a Nautical Almanac, you can extend the same method to all the navigational celestial bodies.

Experienced celestial navigators will enjoy a simple alternative to the intercept method – one that doesn’t depend on sight reduction tables, and one that yields latitude and longitude directly without plotting. They will also be thankful for a simple method that allows them to find their position after not practicing CN for some time. And everyone will appreciate the booklet fitting inside a sextant case, making a complete navigator’s go-kit that is handy for leg-to-leg hopping, emergencies, and lifeboats. It contains a reproducible worksheet and a 4-year sun almanac which is useable to the year 2050. SC, 2007, 24 pages.
