We’ll uncover the mysteries of celestial navigation and break it down in simple terms to get you started. Often considered a backup to electronic navigation, we’ll show you that it’s not that hard to learn and provides a far more enriching experience. We’ll cover topics such as the history of celestial navigation, the celestial sphere, using the Nautical Almanac, using the sextant, taking sun and star sights, as well as using Site Reduction Tables and plotting sheets.
