How to use TABLE 4- Sun's GHA and Declination for years 2001 to 2036
#1
With a little effort you can get the Sun's GHA & Declination using TABLE 4. - GHA and Declination of the Sun for the Years 2001 to 2036- Argument “Orbit Time”. 

It's printed on one sheet of paper.


Our site also has The Nautical Almanac for the Sun only which has 15 days of the Sun's GHA and Declination on each page. Any year, printed on both sides, takes up about 14 pages.

The Nautical Almanac is necessary for the determination of GHA and declination of the various celestial bodies a navigator works with.

However, TABLE 4 is very difficult to understand and the explanation provided on the second page of the TABLE is confusing.

We wrote our explanation with the expressed purpose of making TABLE 4 easy to understand and use.  Of course, it does take some practice.


Hopefully, you'll find our explanation and examples useful.

Good work! You have made it very easy to understand.

I've stayed away from Table 4 for years. Sometimes I got the correct result but mostly not so.

Very much appreciate the explanation.
