    'The same techniques guided ancient Polynesians in the open Pacific and led Sir Ernest Shackleton to remote Antarctica, then oriented astronauts when the Apollo 12 was disabled by lightning, the techniques of celestial navigation.

    A glimmer of the old lore has returned to the Naval Academy.

    Officials reinstated brief lessons in celestial navigation this year, nearly two decades after the full class was determined outdated and cut from the curriculum...'

    "glimmer' and 'brief' are apt descriptors, but it is at least a small step in that direction.
