    Re: A NEW Online Nautical Almanac

    I would like to thank Frank for the hard work he must have put into this online almanac.I've not had a chance to do much with it except a glance through it but it will be used.I plan to bring it to my student's attention(after they learn to use other manual methods as prescribed by the lesson plans I made)as another tool to use.
    Thanks Frank

    I've created a new web tool which can provide detailed, accurate online 'Nautical Almanac' data. It uses the same engine as the lunars prediction page which I've described recently on the list. It includes all (? have I missed anything ?) of the information in Reis's Online Nautical Almanac except the "v" and "d" interpolation figures, though not in the same format. It's valid over a much longer time period, and I believe that the accuracy is excellent. As relatively new software, there are likely to be bugs popping up. Let me know when they bug you!

    Access the online almanac via the link on my lunars page here:
    or directly here:
