This is how you plot a fix position combining two or more distances: Let's assume you sail near the coast. The radar is in good working condition and in operation. Taking into account your last position, and after comparing the nautical chart's coast line with that on the radar screen, you spot two points on the screen, A and B, from where you can take distances. The equivalent ones on the nautical chart are points A and B. Using the radar's range marker you measure a distance of 5.2 nautical miles from point A, and 2.8 nautical miles from point B.

You note the time - let's assume it is 0930 hours. Then return to the nautical chart, and using the dividers, span a distance of 5.2 nautical miles on the latitude scale which is closest to the present position and which runs along the sides of the chart. Apply this span, placing one leg of the dividers at point A, and draw a semicircle near the course line. Now span a distance of 2.8 nautical miles and apply this span, placing one leg of the dividers at point B, and draw a second semicircle intersecting the first semicircle and near the course line. The point where the two semicircles intersect is the fix position at 0930 hours.

In celestial navigation, "lunar distance" is the angle between the Moon and another celestial body. The "lunar distances method" uses this angle, also called a "lunar", and a nautical almanac to calculate Greenwich time. By comparing that calculated time to the measured local time, the navigator can determine longitude. The method was used for some time during the 17th century, before the introduction of the marine chronometer. A similar method uses the positions of the Galilean moons of Jupiter. In celestial navigation, knowledge of the time at Greenwich and the measured positions of one or more celestial objects allows the navigator to calculate latitude and longitude. Reliable marine chronometers were unavailable until the late 18th century and not affordable until the 19th century. After the method was first published in 1763 by British astronomer royal Nevil Maskelyne, for about a hundred years mariners lacking a chronometer used the method of lunar distances to determine Greenwich time as a key step in determining longitude. Conversely, a mariner with a chronometer could check its accuracy using a lunar determination of Greenwich time. The method relies on the relatively quick movement of the moon across the background sky, completing a circuit of 360 degrees in 27.3 days. In an hour then, it will move about half a degree, roughly its own diameter, with respect to the background stars and the Sun. Using a sextant, the navigator precisely measures the angle between the moon and another body. That could be the Sun or one of a selected group of bright stars lying close to the Moon's path, near the ecliptic; Regulus was particularly commonly used. At that moment, anyone on the surface of the earth who can see the same two bodies will observe the same angle . The navigator then consults a prepared table of lunar distances and the times at which they will occur. By comparing the corrected lunar distance with the tabulated values, the navigator finds the Greenwich time for that observation. Knowing Greenwich time and local time, the navigator can work out longitude. Local time can be determined from a sextant observation of the altitude of the Sun or a star. Then the longitude is readily calculated from the difference between local time and Greenwich Time, at 15 degrees per hour. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.

Let's assume that we are sailing from A to B, and that A is the last fixed position plotted on the chart at 10:00. Now it is 11:30 and we have to plot a new position using the Dead Reckoning (DR). The true course is 045 degrees, and the speed through the water, taken from the speed log is 7 knots Knowing the course, the speed, and the running time from 10:00 am to 11:30 am, we can find the distance sailed using the formula - D is equal to S times T divided by 60, where D is the distance in nautical miles, S is the boat speed, and T is the time in minutes. In our case: 7 knots times 90 minutes divided by 60 equals 10.5 nautical miles. Using the dividers, we span a distance of 10.5 miles on the latitude scale which is closest to the course line, and which runs along the sides of the chart. We applied this span on our course, placing one leg of the dividers on the 10:00 position and the other leg on the course, marking the new position with an X, recording the time of 11:30am.
