Celestial navigation is the science of determining position on the earth by referencing
the altitude and position of the sun, stars and planets. Satellite navigation and global
positioning systems (GPS) changed things. Sextants are still very important, even with
electronic navigation. The U.S. Naval Academy (see teaching positions there) has
modified its curriculum regarding celestial navigation (see New York Times article).
A leader in electronic navigation is Sperry, who regularly posts positions. California
Maritime Academy (at listed employers) periodically has openings for deck officers.
