    Re: Celestial navigation classes: looking for suggestions...

    I’ve been following this topic and thinking about it.  I know the goals at Mystic Seaport in general are to reach out to new people/new audience and use the planetarium and its facilities more effectively. You have taught your classes for years. What has been your most successful audience? People interested in history,sailors, retired members of the community? What has been successful elsewhere? Failures elsewhere?
    Somehow it has got to be fun interesting and not too complicated.  Still thinking and best regards.

    Exotic topics to think about : Artificial horizons, dip short, backsights, daytime Venus, ultra high altitude GP circle of position, and sunrise/sunset LOP without a sextant. Something really far out would be longitude by jovian moons which could be an extra  subject for the land navigation class.
