Celestial Navigation Publications Almanacs Tables Nautical  Almanacs,  volumes  of  information  that  tabulate  the  position  of various  celestial  bodies,  the  times  of  sunrise  and  sunset,  moonrise  and moonset,  and  other  astronomical  data  used  by  navigators,  are  prepared jointly  by  the  U.S.  Naval  Observatory  and  the  Royal  Greenwich Observatory  in  England.  However,  the  almanac  volumes  are  printed  both in the United States and in England. The  Nautical Almanac  is published annually, and the  Air Almanac  is published  twice  each  year.  These  publications  give  ephemeristic  data  for marine and air navigation respectively (the Air Almanac can be, and sometimes  is,  used  by  marine  surface  navigators).  These  volumes  are used  in  many  others  countries  with  minor  modifications,  chiefly  changes in the language used for page headings and in the explanatory material. The  Almanac  for  Computers  is  also  published  by  the  U.S.  Naval Observatory  with  mathematical  data  and  instructions  for  the  computation of  ephemeristic  data  using  electronic  computers  or  advanced  models  of calculators.  These  almanacs  are  discussed  in  greater  detail  in  later  text. Sight  Reduction  Tables  for  Marine  Navigation,  Pub.  No.  229,  published  by DMAHTC,  in  six  volumes,  each  volume  covering  16°  of  latitude,  North  or South (1° overlap between volumes) (see chapter 9). Sight  Reduction  Tables  for  Air  Navigation,  Pub.  No.  249,  published  by DMAHTC  in  three  volumes;  offers  somewhat  greater  ease  and  speed  in sight reduction, but has a limited range of declination and gives a lower order of precision as to position (see chapter 9). 3-9
