This video takes on the challenge of simplifying celestial navigation
. Buckley gives the viewer just enough concept
but sticks primarily to the procedure, like a chef
explaining the steps in a recipe. Buckley demonstrates the following steps:
1. Take a Sight of the sun with your sextant
2. Get your Geographical Position from the Air Almanac.
3. Select an Apparent Position along a line of latitude.
4. Refer to the Sight Reduction Tables to draw a Line of Position.
5. Plot your Exact Position.
