For over 150 years the United States Nautical Almanac Office has published The Nautical Almanac, first as part of the American Ephemeris and Nautical Almanac, and then on its own, to provide the US Navy with a convenient form of the astronomical data used for celestial navigation. This book is still the standard resource for marine celestial navigation for the U.S. Navy. The book is produced in collaboration with Her Majesty's Nautical Almanac Office in the UK. That Office maintains the copyright on the material it produces.

Audience

Navigators, sailors, and astronomers will benefit from this resource the most.  However, students pursuing degrees for a Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation or research for Principles of Celestial Navigation or Astro/Nav classes may be interested in this volume. Professional libraries in marine transportation companies that support marine navigation and logistic operations, or intermodal marine technician positions--as well as academic institutions that provide astronomy and maritime studies programs--should have this resource available as a primary source reference work.
