    The US Power Squadrons offer two courses in celestial navigation,
    both of which are excellent. Junior Navigator is the introductory course
    and Navigator is the final theory course. They are based on the nautical
    and cosines method of sight reduction. I have utilized these methods
    many times while on deliveries. Check the USPS web site to get
    information on their courses and the closest squadron.
