Frank: This was worthwhile.....totally rusty.
While watching the last episode of Victoria, really thrilling drama,
after plotting and putting on my best glasses for eyeballing data, I calculated
41 degrees 25.8 N, 71 47.3 W . Estimated time of LAN about 16:59:06.
Since I’ve taken your course, I assume you are looking toward Block Island
Sound, Stonington, CT more or less. Hope the course went well. Maybe in that
little park standing on the rocks ?

I think Frank must be a good swimmer according to Google Earth. Presumably
Frank's sights are better than my calculation.
LAT 41d 27.1N
LAN by equal altitudes 165815UT EoT 12m 2s ( I suppose the change in
declination may shift this a bit which may be why he's got wet.)
LON by Time Sight on 172319 is 71d 24.9W
