    Modern celestial navigation: when and why?
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2015 Feb 11, 11:22 -0800

    This is a topic that's worth considering every couple of years. Who is using traditional, or partially traditional, celestial navigation at sea today? How often do they use it and why? Of course, there is a diverse variety of vessels crossing the world's oceans from small "sail-training" education schooners and private yachts to aircraft carriers and container ships. Many vessels carry sextants and many navigators learn celestial for licensing requirements and regulations. How many go beyond the letter of the regulations? How many practice regularly? And why? What is the practical relevance of celestial navigation today, and how should that impact its practice?
