Lizard Sundial

A new sundial placed near the Uffizi in Florence, Italy. This sundial shows the path of the shadow thrown by sun at noon (the analemma) throughout the year and the months are shown by the signs of the zodiac. The gnomon is the lizard's tail.


Having been taken in December close to midday, the short shadow is close to the sign of Capricorn
