    Cel Nav Webpage
    From: Mary Taylor

    Hello, everyone.
    The Celestial Navigation Net is finally up at www.celestialnavigation.net .
    First, I want to thank everyone for the many, many kind comments
    and suggestions for my webpage that I received before it
    was up for public consumption. I have made many changes and additions based
    on your ideas, though I still have far to go (VERY far!) so keep the
    suggestions coming!
    The page is currently the ONLY central webpage for celnav that attempts
    to act as a comprehensive, annotated "hub" to all the resources on the
    internet, many of which are the awesome web pages and tutorials written
    by members of this list.  While it has links to resources used by advanced
    its purpose is really to excite and encourage newcomers to celestial
    as well as to provide classroom links and resources for (mostly) k-12
    I have received many enthusiasticcomments from people who knew nothing
    about celnav before looking at the page, and now say they at last have a
    on what it is all about and want to learn more.
    It does not try to teach celnav, but to give enough background etc. so that
    the student then goes on to a tutorial, book, or course, they will not be
    flying blind as I was when I first learned.
    I am still (and always) looking for links, graphics, additional sources,
    even book reviews. The weakest area is History  - when I get time I may have
    to write one myself, unless someone out there has an electronic document
    they'd let me put up (with credit and your copyright, of course).
    Again, this is a nonprofit educational page (the only reason for the
    Amazon links is the hope that I will get a few dollars that will help offset
    maybe 1% of the cost of keeping it up!).
    One note: I am trying to keep this from being a regular "sailing" page,
    as there are many of those; hence apart from some classroom links,
    I prefer links that are directly related to celnav (i.e., US Sailing has
    a Cel Nav Certification page I link to).
    Thank you all again. I hope anyone who has a celnav webpage will add my
    page as a link --- the more pages I am linked to, the more likely the page
    is to eventually show up in a search engine (yes, I've registered it with
    every search engine, but that doesn't always work!).
