    Re: Line of Position Fix
    From: Brad Morris

    Hi Debra

    The best two times of the day are the civil twilights.  Those are just before dawn and just after sunset.  The best bodies to use are the 57 navigational stars.

    Just as a note, you will want 3 bodies in your fix.  It is unlikely that 2 LOPs will cross at your position, in general, and 3 will produced a 'cocked hat'.

    Best Regards
    Brad Morris
