"For an Enlightened Future"

 

The figure eight shape at the sundial's center is called an analemma. The analemma is a graph of the changing declination (altitude) of the sun and the equation of time (the difference between clock and sun time) for the entire year. Located on the North South Meridian and illuminated by a beam of sunlight, it also serves as a noon mark Solaris caldendar.
