Notes

Altitude of the Sun

The altitude of sun on 16th June, 1813. In previous drafts I provided the sun’s altitude at noon, for the location marking Meeting Point One, between Impérieuse and Bit-by-Bit. It was calculated from tables found at the Astronomical Applications Department of the U.S. Naval Observatory, Washington, DC. But then it dawned on me that the exercise was more of interest to me than most readers and I deleted it.
