In the movie Close Encounters of Third Kind, there was a scene where the star, Richard Dreyfuss, was approaching Devil's Tower in Wyoming. He could have determined his distance from Devil's Tower by first stopping at point P, and taken a measurement of the angle from his location to the height of the tower of 13.5 degrees. He
