Introduction to Celestial Navigation and the Sextant (1 Day 11/10)

Sun, November 10, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm PST

View other dates for:

This brief session introduces you to the ideas behind using celestial bodies to find a position. It includes practice using a sextant and reading a Nautical Almanac. We’ll take the classic noon sun sight to find latitude, and estimate longitude. We’ll also work through an example using sight reduction tables to get a morning or afternoon line of position.
