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.
