    Position by Lunar Distance
    From: Dave Walden
    Date: 2009 Jan 30, 08:01 -0800

    Since I know there are at least a couple out there who are interested, here's one:
    
    You decided to go North to visit your brother, taking your sextant along in 
    case some interesting opportunities arose.  On 8 Jan 2009, at 0800 hr UT, 
    there being no available horizon on your brother's side of the island, you 
    measure two lunar distances:
    
    Aldebaran-Far limb 10deg 4.6min
    
    Pollux-Far limb 45deg 45.4min
    
    What Bay are you in?
