What is a good sentence for the word observation?

I can give you several sentences.The observation tower loomed over the nearby buildings.You are under observation for your chest pain, and need to spend the night in hospital.This is your observation period; if you do well during the next few weeks, the manager will give you a raise.

If you were lost at sea and needed to know your latitude where on earth would you not be able to tell?

You can always find your latitude and longitude by getting a 3-star celestial fix; as long as you have a sextant and an accurate timepiece.If you are looking for a one-star observation to determine your latitude, then you would need to be able to see Polaris, the north star. Polaris cannot be observed anywhere south of about 3 degrees north latitude. (Polaris is not EXACTLY above the North Pole, so in order to get an accurate reading of your longitude, you would still need a nautical almanac and a watch.)But with a watch, a sextant and a nautical almanac, you could do a "local apparent noon" observation of the Sun, and determine both your latitude and longitude quite precisely from one sighting.
