    This article from the Navigation News is by one of our heroes Tristan Gooley. Tristan is a leading exponent of natural navigation. I think that it is important to note that the Taurag were not using the stars as Tristan had expected by always knew where their villages were as well as Mecca. You will find on this web site the recurring theme that we have a sense of direction and people who have a sense of direction know where places are however far away. Animals and Aborigines where there is little to navigate by are especially good at this. You can think about how the bar tailed godwit flies from Alaska to New Zealand on a dead straight track.
