    Position from altitude and azimuth.

    If on 6 May 2020 at 1500 UT, I had a 6 second, well aligned theodolite, I would have measured for the sun:

    Ho=54 d 55.9 m and AZo=120 d 27.9 m.  Topocentric, unrefracted, center of body.

    Where am I?  (Hint: If you use the method I did, you may learn or be reminded of somethings about the definitions of nautical miles.)

    Ask if you want/need more details of conditions and assumptions.

    I hope I have no errors or typos.  If so, sorry.
