The Celestial Navigation Information Network is Here!
What could be easier than reckoning the longitude by simply observing the time of sunrise or sunset, or steering by a star? Almost as easy is the finding of latitude at noon. But how about identifying the navigational stars? Recognizing the planets? Accounting for the parallax of the moon? More experienced celestial navigators can use an unknown star shot through a hole in the overcast, shoot planets in broad daylight, predict sunrise underway, and calculate great circle distances.
