Abstract : A simple method is presented of self-contained solution by cosmonauts of navigational problems during flight in orbits near planets by means of carrying out of astronavigational observations and measurements of altitude of flight. Thus, astronauts have to conduct simple calculations with the use of special navigational tables. The presence on board of any kind of computers is not obligatory.
