    Landmark sights
    From: Peter Monta

    Here are some sights I took the other evening between a distant streetlamp and Jupiter/Arcturus:

    time                 body_1      body_2    sextant_angle
    2019-08-04T06:08:37  streetlamp  Jupiter   42d  6.4'
    2019-08-04T06:14:58  streetlamp  Arcturus  36d 59.7'
    2019-08-04T06:17:10  streetlamp  Jupiter   40d  7.6'
    2019-08-04T06:19:24  streetlamp  Arcturus  36d 53.5'
    2019-08-04T06:21:49  streetlamp  Jupiter   39d  2.4'
    2019-08-04T06:24:12  streetlamp  Arcturus  36d 49.3'

    The sextant angle is the raw, as-observed angle with only the index correction applied.

    What's the azimuth and elevation of the streetlamp?  Location is 37.431136 N, 122.182380 W.

    Cheers,
    Peter
