    Mistake in last email
    From: Mal Misuraca
    Date: 1998 Jul 30, 9:53 AM

    I see from reading over my email on using equal altitudes around local noon
    that I used the term "equator" instead of "horizon" in describing the sight to
    take after noon has occurred.  (We know noon has occurred when the sun begins
    to decline in altitude in our sextant sights.)  What I meant to say was
    "Preset the sextant to the altitude taken before noon, then wait for the sun
    to descend to the horizon and note the time," not "descend to the equator."
    
    Hope that clarifies.
