    Re: Sun Altitude/Azimuth by 2102-D

    I know you could have made the sun problem easier, if you had worked it on the Two Minute.
    Dec . for Oct 11 is S7 degrees. (from the almanac or my Power Point prestation interpolation.)
    Sun rise 06:02 from Nautical almanac or anywhere. Plus Oct 11 on the rim of time of 13:24=19:26 for Aries. Place Aries on 19:26
    Place the sun at S 7 DEC. at the horizon will give you AMP of 98 degrees. If you know AMP and not DEC? The problem could have worked in many ways with the 2 minute. Now here is the good part. The Time (GMT) the bearing and height of the SUN can be obtained by moving the sun and simply reading a line from the Center Post through the Sun to the rim time for GMT. You can now track the sun all day in terms of GMT-bearing and height.
