    Re: Eclipse Sun Moon LOPs

    Redoing Greg Rudzinski’s eclipse observations with actual temperature and pressure data extracted from the lunar form:

    Pressure: 29.98 inches Hg = 761.492 Torr = 1015 mb
    Temperature: 75 °F
    Height of eye: 0
    Index error: 0

    increases Sun’s Ho by 0.1’ and improves the celestial fix to:

    Lat: 34° 34.7’ N
    Lon: 119° 03.7’ W

    Distance of celestial fix from GPS position: 26 NM (better by 5 NM)
