    Off topic, but another glorious massive moon-rise tonight for the harvest.  we'll see tomorrow though when she reaches her fullness, a blood red super-moon at its rise gives way to the dime sized moon at zenith.

    Love the moon, it gives us our tides and that is a good thing.

    Dear Antoine

    You are corect all the altitudes (Hc) are geocentric and were calculated by the "Nav Bodies" worksheet contained in my Celestial Navigator Excel workbook  which  can be downloaded from the USPS District 16 web site https://www.uspsd16.org
    From the "Dept. Info" dropdown menu select "Educational" and under "Quizzes | Workbooks | Software" select "Celestial Navigation".  See the attached PDF "Overview of Celestial Navigation an Excel Workbook" for a list of the 30 worksheets contained in the workbook.  The attached PDF "Shight Planning Worksheet" is an example from May 2003 used for sight planning at Ediz Hook.  The worksheet "Fix Sans DR" can be used to calculate a fix from the intersections of circles of equal altitude.
