Figure  6-3.  Example  of  The  Nautical  Almanac  format
Using The Nautical Almanac Format The  Nautical  Almanac  is  laid  out  in  what  are  called  daily  pages.  Each daily  page  contains  astronomical  data  for  3  days.  The  left-hand  pages contain  values  for  GHA  and  Dec.  (declination)  for  Aries,  Venus,  Mars, Jupiter,  Saturn,  and  the  57  navigational  stars.  The  right-hand  pages contain  values  for  GHA,  Dec.,  sunrise,  sunset,  moonrise,  moonset,  the time of meridian passage for the Sun, and equation of time. The  inside  cover  contains  altitude  correction  tables  for  the  Sun,  stars,  and planets,  and  values  for  the  dip  of  the  horizon  correction.  After  the  daily pages  are  instructions  for  sight  reduction,  arc  to  time  conversion  table,  and interpolation tables, and on the inside back cover are altitude correction tables for the Moon. Figure  6-3  contains  excerpts  from  The  Nautical  Almanac.  As  we  work through  practical  examples  in  celestial  navigation,  you  will  learn  how  to use the information in  The Nautical Almanac. 6-5
