LUNAR DISTANCES AND OCCULTATIONS USING H. O. 214

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: It is instructive, and of possible value under emergency conditions, to be able to determine the time (and hence longitude) by celestial observation without aid of chronometer or radio. The method of lunar distances, usually considered obsolete, may be used to accomplish this. With the aid of a modern inspection table, the once arduous process of reduction represents no more work than the determination of two or three ordinary lines of position.
