    It simple. Just rearrange the standard cosine formula for calculating Hc to solve for HLA. Input latitude, declination, altitude of zero and then solve for LHA. Then subtract SHA from LHA to determine the requisite GHA Aries and then look up that GHA Aries in the Nautical Almanac.

    Subject: [NavList] Calculate star rise or set time?

    Is there a simple way to calculate when a star will rise or set as viewed from a specific Longitude?  I know that when LHA equals your Longitude the celestial body is on your meridian but I can't seem to figure out how calculate a star's rise and set time.
    Thanks,
    Sam
