Suppose you are on a ship somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. You take sightings on Polaris and find that it's altitude is 52 degrees. You're told that a certain star is on the prime meridian at midnight Greenwich time. This star is on your meridian at 4 A.M G.M.T What is your latitude and longitude?
Thank you very much!
WEll, you latitude is 52 deg. You longitude is 4 hrs later, or 4*15 deg W
