My last post for the A to Z Challenge is on Zubenelgenubi.
Have you heard of it before?
I have, actually. I’m not just making this up for the challenge. 😉
I remember when I really first started learning about all that stuff. When I was a cadet on the Ariadne, sailing across the Atlantic Ocean. The skies were wide open and the stars were so bright. Our sail training master has us out practicing with the sextant, calculating our position. We were challenged to beat the actual ships crew. We got pretty good at it by the end of the crossing. 🙂
That was way before everybody had GPS. 😉
