    Re: Latitude and longitude around noon

    Hello All:
     
    Have I missed the answer:  Where was Frank? Eastern Point Beach/Park?
     
    Regards

    Here is my result
     
    N41°26'42"   W71°43'33"
    (N41°26'.7.    W71°43'.55)
     
    Which I obtained as the average of all answers provided to date.  A novel method which places me squarely in the woods of RI.
     
    (Max-Min) latitude = 1.6'
    (Max-Min) longitude = 1°32'47"
     
    Proving, yet one more time, that obtaining longitude from the noon latitude observation is fairly worthless.
