    Daytime Venus Moon Fix by Pub 208
    From: Greg Rudzinski

    To honor veterans on this day the U.S. Navy MK 5 WW 2 Bendix bubble octant was dusted off to observe Venus and the Sun for a rare daytime planet fix. For timing a Wakmann stopwatch hacked to PST was used. There is a handy holder on the bottom of the Bendix bubble octant which holds the stopwatch for the fast mark. The plot came in close to GPS to please those WW2 bomber navigators.
