  • A sextant is a tool used to calculate the angle between two visible objects. It is primarily used to calculate the celestial body’s angle with the horizon, a technique called as sighting the object or taking a sight. The user’s location on the grid map of the world is then determined using the angle measured and the moment it was measured. Consequently, sextants are essentially tools for navigation and have been effectively utilised by sailors and even other travellers throughout history.
