    Re: 12 Feb 2011 Unorthodox Jupiter Lunar from a moving platform

    Dear Antoine,

    As no one else seems to respond to this problem, I give my somewhat doubtful answer: Your position at the time of the lunar distance observation was somewhere in the vicinity of 46d42'N 2d30'W, with the watch some 16h24m16s slow on GMT. I haven't been able to fit the Jupiter altitude into my solution very well, maybe I have done some arithmetical error somewhere.
