    Re: International Date Line and Earhart/Noonan

    Dear Philippe,

    Here you asked:

    I'm wondering about the date line, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. How do you take into account the passage of this line in astronomical navigation? In the Nautical Almanac, should you skip one day, use the same twice, or do nothing ...?

    While editing the wikipedia (Russian) article on Mr Noonan, I discovered this fine example of speculations by some "filmmaker".
    I find such speculatiuons HIGHLY insulting for any navigator, Mr Noonan especially.

    Warm regards,
    Tony
