Sol Path

This tool provides a graphical representation of the sun's apparent path through the sky. It can be used to rapidly determine coarse sun angle data, or to assist in a general understanding of the sun's movement. Please read the important instructions, notes, and FAQ pages before using this tool.

NOTE: This tool requires the Shockwave plug-in, which is not supported by all web browsers. The author is currently re-programming this tool in Flash for compatibility. (If the tool isn't working for you, you may wish to try a different browser.) [hide note]
