    Latitude 48 Article Image as CN Piloting Exercise
    From: Greg Rudzinski
    Date: 2020 Aug 23, 05:22 -0700

    David Burch forwarded a Latitude 48 article that had a cool image of the moon and venus showing nicely off the starboard bow of one of the racing sailboats. David suspected that this image was a morning twilight capture on 16 August 2020 in the general area of Smith Island (48.3° north 122.8° west). The caption under the photo refers to sunset. I am in agreement with David on this and have performed a CN piloting exercise using the moon azimuth and a moon diameter as angular reference. The best match for the mountain is Mount Erie at 1300 ft. The range by vertical angle  and azimuth relative to the moon is consistent with date and position on the last leg of the reported sailboat race.
