    RE: What were the Lunar Distances for - the request to Dan Allen

    Good Morning List,

    Dan, thank you so much for scanning your copy of Bowditch but I am so sorry the binding broke! That is such a heartbreak. Let's hope it was for a worthy cause. I have a question about Article 308:

    "Greenwich Date. -- Correct the chronometer time for its error form Greenwhich time and deduce the Greenwich date, i.e., the Greenwich day and hour (mean time), reckoning the hours in succession from 0 to 24, beginning at noon."

    Does that mean that in the 1800's the 24 hour clock began at noon? That 2300 hr. would be 11 AM? I suppose that makes sense since it was much easier to determine noon rather than mid-night. Can anyone give me a synopis of 24 hour time?

    Cheers,
    John McKeel
