Celestial navigation is a sure way to know where you are in the world by calculating your position relative to a celestial body. While it could be argued the need for knowledge beyond a basic noon sight of the sun is no necessary, candidates who do this course are doing it because it is a passion, and enthusiasm for the art of self reliance.
