Short version: Visit this link at 1700 UT (1pm EDT) and/or at 2300 UT (7pm EDT) tomorrow:
Visit and socialize in a live audio-video meeting. Talk about sextants and celestial methods, as well as lots of peripheral topics. Meet NavList members, other navigation enthusiasts, and new students, too. Meetings happen on Webex (which is a lot like Zoom, but it's not Zoom).
Small special topic this week: How long until sunset? Can you look at the sky and estimate when the Sun will go down? It's a nice, basic trick valuable to anyone who is out in Nature and away from technology. Whether you're hiking the Appalachian Trail or approaching an island landfall in the South Pacific, if you can estimate how long until sunset with good accuracy you're safer and smarter than the next navigator...
