    Re: An artificial horizon eclipse sight
    From: Doug MacPherson

    A lunar (sun and moon) could give you time.  The height of the sun or moon could give you a line of position (using the lake as an artifical horizon).   A really accurate compass stationed on the land could give you a rough bearing to the moon or sun and thus a rough position :)

    Cheers,

    Doug
