How to solve longitude and latitude?
To determine the longitude of space we consider that the Earth rotates one full curve (360º in length) in one day. So it changes one distance of length to 1 / 360th of the day, or every four minutes. To calculate your height, so you just need to find the time difference between your current location and the day at the Prime Meridian Using the beam line that is intended to align the beam with the North Star. Use a protractor to measure the angle between the pole and the horizon (90º in the measuring line). This angle is your latitude
