    Re: More comments on movie "All is Lost"
    From: Greg Rudzinski

    Latitude 38 comments pull no punches. The movie can't be any worse than AMELIA regarding trivializing celestial navigation.

    For discussion - What would be the best way to perform celestial navigation under pressures of an emergency with no prior knowledge of celestial navigation ? (Sextant, Nautical Almanac, Quartz Watch, Pilot Chart aboard)

    I recommend as the minimum:
    1. Latitude by Local Apparent Noon
    2. Longitude by Timing Equal Altitudes
    3. Latitude by Polaris
