In 1944, the Navy began a new specialty: celestial navigation for Link trainer instructors. The 10-week course was held at the NAS Seattle, Washington.

In this photo, Ruthe Ingerslew, Patricia Baldwin, and Sally King study the earth’s rotation to, as the Navy put it, “the celestial sphere” (aka the stars).

It comes from the National Archives.
