    Are you assuming you do not have access to an almanac or ephemeris giving the GHA and Declination of the Sun for a given date and time....?

    I am not certain if this clarification is necessary but I will stipulate . . . "of the geographical position of the sun" . . . 

    If it is possible, how would one calculate the azimuth, Zn, of the sun if all that were given is the date and time, and the latitude/ longitude of position?

    Best regards,
