    So just set your sextant to the altitudes you measured yesterday and  go out and sweep the horizon and you will find your stars.

    "But wait" you say. "What you say may be true if the boat isn't moving but what if I am sailing east at 120 nm each day at 60 degrees latitude, wouldn't that cause the altitudes to increase an additional 4 degrees per day at twilight? "
    "No." Your twilight will come an additional 16 minutes earlier GMT but your LHA Aries will be just that 1 degree greater.
