Learning to use a Sextant by Cole

A sextant is a tool that can help you calculate your position.  Our friend David brought a sextant to our boat and taught us how to use it.  You use mirrors on movable arms to bring the sun down to the horizon to get your fix.

Here is me using the sextant.  You use the colored filters to make the sun darker, otherwise it will blind you.
