    Re: Polar navigation...exact north pole?

    Every observation taken at the pole is a meridian shot. So take a shot and if the computed latitude is not 90 degrees then move your butt in the direction that should take you to the pole. Wait 6 hours and take another meridian shot and move in the direction that should get you to the pole. A couple of iterations and you are there.

    Mark,
    Here's something of general interst concerning the North Pole.
    See how the Russians find the North Pole with their nuclear powered ice breaker.
    Notice the angle of the shadows-

    Don't know what time or date this "sight" was taken.
