Ok. So you didn't find a way to solve that problem. By like a mixture of very sensitive magnetic field detectors and gravitational field detectors or something. (since both the earth's magnetic field and the strength of gravity vary very very very slightly depending on where you are on Earth, if you had sensitive enough detectors and a big table of values for every location, you could determine your position that way...)

Or releasing a drone sub to go check the starfield while the mothership hides safe in the depth.

You know, something else.
