# Sundial

Klick here for a large view!

A sundial is a device that measures time by the position of the Sun. In common designs such as the horizontal sundial, the sun casts a shadow from its style (a thin rod or a sharp, straight edge) onto a flat surface marked with lines indicating the hours of the day. As the sun moves across the sky, the shadow-edge progressively aligns with different hour-lines on the plate. Such designs rely on the style being aligned with the axis of the Earth's rotation. Hence, if such a sundial is to tell the correct time, the style must point towards true North (not the north or south magnetic pole) and the style's angle with horizontal must equal the sundial's geographical latitude. However, many sundials do not fit this description, and operate on different principles.

19. Great shot!

Thanks for adding this to our group Gnomons, Styles and Nodi

Gnomons like this that don't look like traditional gnomons and are part of the artwork, are rare and wonderful. This photo proves that when sundials include artwork the result can be amazing. More artists and need to colaborate with sundial designers in the future!
