The Nautical Almanac contains tabulations for the Sun, Moon, planets and stars for use in the determination of position at sea from sextant observations. In addition, it gives times of sunrise, sunset, twilights, moonrise and moonset, for use in planning of observations; all necessary interpolation and altitude correction tables; the phases of the Moon; a pole-star table; diagrams and notes for the identification of stars and planets; information on eclipses of the Sun and Moon; and the standard times of most countries of the world. To make the Almanac self-contained, a set of concise sight reduction tables are also provided for the navigator.
