    Latitude at Noon and Midnight.
    From: Herman Dekker

    For determing Latitude at Noon by the Sun, Frank has learnt us, to use only one Formula.
    Lat= (90°-Ho)+Dec and use the normal proper signs.
    Dec=N use +, Dec=S use -,  If your own shadow points N use +, if it points S use -.

    But when you are near Spitsbergen at ~ 80°N, and you measure the height of the Sun at
    midnight for your Latitude. (You can measure there your Lat twice a day in the Summer?).

    Is there also one formula and Signrules for that case?

    Regards,

    HermanD
