    Re: Take two: Latitude and longitude around noon

    I would like to point out that there were not 5 but 6 replies to you puzzle.

    An though you might quibble with the lattitude I gave as not qualifying as an answer, I could equally quibble with the raw data.

    My answer south of the sun was approximately 4 nm off.

    I would also like to point out to the group that had the altitude data been larger than the dec of the sun my proposal that there would be two answers for the possible latitude one north and one south.  Interestingly the changing dec shifts the longitude east on one and west on the other.
