Analemmatic

Walk on Sundials

THESE LARGE "WALK-ON" ANALEMMATIC SUNDIALS TELL THE TIME BY YOU STANDING ON THE FIGURE OF 8 ON THE CORRECT MONTH WITH YOUR ARMS STRETCHED ABOVE YOUR HEAD AND YOUR BODY WILL CAST A SHADOW INDICATING THE TIME. AS WITH OTHER SUNDIALS, IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, THE TIME IS READ ANTI-CLOCKWISE AND CLOCKWISE FOR THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE. THE SEASONAL CHANGE IN THE SUN IS COMPENSATED FOR BY STANDING ON THE RESPECTIVE DATE.

DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF THE YEAR, A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MINUTES IS EITHER SUBTRACTED OR ADDED FROM YOUR SHADOW TIME AS PER THE OFFSETS AS SHOWN AT THE ANALEMMA (FIGURE OF 8) BASE GIVING CONSTANT TIME THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

LET US DESIGN AN ANALEMMATIC SUNDIAL FOR YOUR SPECIAL SPACE AND POSITION.
