    Re: Time and place

    In my previous post there was a typo: UT should be 0h40m20s. There is an infinite number of solutions to this problem, or 10800 if you constrict timing to steps of 1s. I just picked one of them, on shore. Dave certainly has another answer. Any place on a curve joining the following positions would give the azimuths observed:

    0h UT 41°10'9"N, 28°15'49"E
    1h       39°38'15"N, 13°31'26"E
    2h       38°11'12"N, 1°12'58"W
    3h       36°48'19"N, 15°57'24"W
