I have spent hours searching the internet, trying to find out about the lunar-distance method of determining longitude. Apparently it involves measuring the moon's altitude, and the angular distance between the moon and the sun or a star. I canot find information about exactly how this is done and if it can be done today( I know the technique was used 100 years ago) I need information about the method, and reference for further reading. Thank you
