Tech/Engineering - Astronomy & Space / yachtmaster ocean certificate of competence
English term or phrase: sun run meridian altitude sight
Tra i vari argomenti d'esame previsti per un certificato di abilitazione alla navigazione oceanica:

planning, reduction and plotting of a sun run meridian altitude sight and a compass check carried out using the bearing of the sun, moon, a star or a planet.

Si parla dunque di navigazione astronomica, ma non riesco a trovare l'espressione precisa relativa.
La traduzione più approssimativa è rilevamento/calcolo del mezzogiorno solare vero, ma attendo conferme, se possibile da esperti o appassionati.

Grazie!! :-)

agree  Vittorio Preite: Si, solo per la latitudine e con un orologio e un calendario anche per la longitudine.
