    Lunars Game
    From: Frank Reed CT

    A little background: I put together the "Lunars Game" page as an experiment in making the idea of lunars accessible to beginning navigation students and also those uninterested in working the math and reduction of lunars (though you'll still benefit from understanding the basics of lunar parallax). And it's an interesting issue from a "theoretical" perspective, too. How much navigation can you do with no instruments at all?

    Incidentally, the image on the page is "to scale". It should accurately represent what you're supposed to see in the sky from the "mystery location", and it's not hard to place yourself at the right distance from your monitor/display so that the Moon appears half a degree wide.

    Here's the link again:
