This is also how sailors managed to navigate before GPS. As long as you know the date and time (of where you set off from) you can determine your longitude based on the position of the stars. Finding your latitude is easy, just see how far Polaris (the north star) is from the horizon… or Sigma Octanis if you’re in the superior hemisphere.
I’m really sorry about not posting any comics last week. I was riding my motorbike through the desert in Australia, and shockingly, there was no reception. Probably should have planned that a bit better. My bad.
The good news is, if you want to read more about my misadventures, I’m gonna’ start posting pictures on my Twitter account @thomaslmcdonell. So feel free to head over there and laugh at me trying to be cool.
Hey remember when I said Sedna would update once a week for “a few weeks”… 7 months ago? Well, don’t listen to me next time I say that. Obviously I have no time-management skills.
Anyway, I’m finally cutting back on anime and Total War and going back to two a week, so come back every Tuesday for more poorly-drawn space/dino zaniness. Let’s see how long it lasts this time.
