    Re: Lunar Distance Puzzle
    From: Geoffrey Kolbe

    I have not been following this thread too closely, but I do have a
    question. In his original challenge, Dave asked,
    
    "Given three lunar distances (only, no altitudes), can one find time
    and position?"
    
     From the ensuing dialogue about refraction, is the consensus now
    that the answer is "no", since any refraction model used must have
    some information about altitudes?
