    That's funny. Literally two days ago, a friend of mine asked  if I could
    teach him celestial navigation and how long it would take. I told him  "anywhere
    from six hours to six months". It all depends on what you hope to get  out of
    it. The basic position finding aboard London's Snark (?) appears to have
    involved getting latitude *and* longitude by Noon Sun sights and other meridian
    sights of stars for latitude. That could be taught and learned in a few  days...
