    Does it make any difference what I measure as long as I can determine
    the UT for that event from an almanac or some computational tool?
    
    I was thinking that there are two ready references, the vertical and
    horizontal.  If knew roughly where I was and had some instrument with
    horizontal and vertical cross hairs, I could mark when the star had the
    same altitude or azimuth as a limb of the moon.  My almanac or
    computational tool could then be used to determine the UT for that event.
