Question Celestial Navigation Simplified Worksheet

I just got the DVD on Netflix and it requires a worksheet and an air almanac from 1975. Does anyone have a copy they can send my way? TIA!

I found it online somewhere. Email me directly and I'll send it to you bstone(AT)atomicfilms.com That DVD is a pretty good explanation. Very Vintage!

Responding to Clarsen123, with a question. I am looking for some sort of simplified instruction on celestial/solar navigation. Is there one available from Netflix, it appears from your post?
I am brand new at this forum, and in fact any forum, so I'm unsure of how this works.

Netflix DVD

Yeah, it's "Celestial Navigation Simplified" by William Buckley. Check it out. It's actually pretty good once you get past his attitude and accent, especially since it was made in the 80's. Good luck!

A simplified tutorial on celestial navigation can be found in written form in the old issues of Reid's Nautical Almanac.
