    It appears that the method is indeed published, and Cugle states that the "method is not to be relied on".  Published it is though.

    Now as to evidence that Noonan used the method?

    I remember that it was published in Cugle´s , up to a certain year after which the paragraph was deleted , and in Navigators Information Files NIF during WW-II .If not from sunset , how would mr.Noonan have acquired his 159-07-E / 04-33.5-S coordinates of the 0718 announced fix ? I remember that you once said he would have his information by visual aid : flying close to , or over Nukumanu . For that event he would howver , reported to be over 159-30-E / 04-30-S , 27 SM eastwards of the fixed coordinates . I already posted today , and these days that when a navigator sees his precomputed sunset-sunrise time-position group come true , het can announce the coordinates , 0718 GMT , before the phenomenon actually occurs , 0719:30 GMT by superficial observation , especially if by making a detour (Choiseul) he initially left the original flight procedures .
