    Old Navigation Techniques
    From: Maurice Millard
    Date: 1998 Jul 22, 7:25 AM

    In the recent past we have had discussions on older navigation techniques
    which including the Lunar Distance method.
    I want to call the attention, to those interested in these affairs, to an
    article in "Navigation",  Winter 1997-1998, Volume 44, #4 by  Arne Molander,
    titled "The Celestial Navigation of Christopher Columbus." (Yes, its some time
    ago, but it takes a while for the library circulation to work its way through
    the subscribers in the company.)
    The author suggests that Columbus could have used the Lunar Distance technique
    to establish his Longitude. Interesting!
