    It's interesting to see that the guys at INMARSAT are acting like good navigators and teasing out as much positional information as possible from the data they have available. The old adage that "a navigator uses ALL information available for the safe navigation of his vessel"  applies here too. See:

Email and discussion forums.  Sadly though I do think that this does have to do with Celestial Nav and finding location.  We are frantically looking for the coordinates Lat and Long of the plane, and that is navigation.  And a navigator is a navigator both during daylight hours and nighttime hours.  Therefore, the Celestial in Celestial Navigation is only an arbitrary title, we take noon shots for most of our fixes. And a navigational fix is one day, and hopefully soon going to pinpoint and locate the wreck of 370.  She lies at the depths of the Southern Indian Ocean, therefore she is a Navigational object.  Not an obstacle, just a very interesting object to locate.
    There was an indication that the plane went down in the roaring 40s. If
    the wreckage is located it will still be quite a challenge to recover,
    even for a carrier group.
