    Celestial Navigation Simplified with William F. Buckley, Jr.

    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.
