    Working analemma
    From: Lu Abel

    In response to questions on the list, I've corresponded with the
    designer of the analemma at the University of Puget Sound.
    The analemma works at clock noon (standard time), not at local noon
    which is about 10 minutes later.  As a result it is offset slightly to
    the west (remember, it's on a south wall and sunlight is being reflected
    onto it from a mirror) and also slightly tilted.
    The designer sent me a Word document that contains both a layman's
    explanation of the analemma and a sketch of it.  If anyone is interested
    a copy, please contact me off-list.
