Define declination, hour circle, GHA, and LHA
Understand how the GP of a body is located by celestial coordinates, and relationships among hour angles
Obtain GHA and declination of the sun from the Nautical Almanac
Calculate LHA and declination from Nautical Almanacdata
3
To obtain a celestial LOP you need:
Ho, altitude of celestial body you observed
Hc, altitude you calculated from your DR
To calculate Hc, you need to know LHA & Dec

Latitude – measured from equator along a meridian of longitude, N or S, to maximum of 90º
Longitude– measured from prime meridian along a parallel of latitude, E or W, to a maximum of 180º

LHA  need to compute local hour angle of body
Relationship between LHA and GHA is defined as:
(cos LHA x cos Lat x cos Dec) + (sin Lat x sin Dec) = sin Hc
LHA = GHA – West Longitude
or
LHA = GHA + East Longitude

Nautical Almanac lists Sun GHA as 298°
and Sun’s Dec is 20° N
What is your latitude and longitude?
Since Dec = 20°N, then Lat = 20°N
GHA of the sun > 180°, so GP of sun is East Lo
GHA of the sun 360° – 298° = 62° E
