    Fw: Somewhere in the Pacific
    From: Andrés Ruiz
    Date: 2008 Dec 23, 12:36 +0100

    Long time ago…

     

    My solution for the fix:

    B = 46.676139º N

    L = 153.94692º W

     

    Note: Dip and T, P effect in refraction do not take into account

    It's 1200GMT 22 June 2008.  You think you're somewhere north of Hawaii within 200 miles.  No horizon visible.  You get two quick lunar distances (very quick, both at 1200.) Moon near to Fomalhaut 27 deg 51.0 min and moon near to Antares 63 deg 30.6 min.  IC zero.  Ht of eye 12 ft.  T 50 deg F. Pres 29.80 inches.

     

    Luckly, while you don't have GPS, you do have a computerized Lunar Calculator program.

     

    Where are you?
