A sextant lies in front of Hector Barbossa.

A sextant was a doubly reflecting navigation instrument that measured the angular distance between two visible objects. The primary use of a sextant was to measure the angle between an astronomical object and the horizon for the purposes of celestial navigation.


A sextant was lying on Captain Toms' table when the Monarch was chasing the Ruddy Rose. Hector Barbossa also had a sextant in front of him when he was trying to plot the Black Pearl's course to the Trident of Poseidon.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

"A map maker’s sextant calculates the angle between a star and the horizon. So even if they are worlds apart, they are forever entwined - the stars and the horizon existing as lovers."
Carina Smyth[src] (screenplay draft)
