Caption: 19th Century sextant. Sextants are used to measure the position of celestial bodies to aid in navigation. They utilise the fact that the exact position in the sky of the Sun and stars depends upon the time and location. If a navigator knows the time, the location (longitude and latitude) can be calculated.
