Metal Sundial - Functional for the Perth Region.

Our daily lives run based on time and schedules, and people often take telling time for granted, as it is easy to look at a watch or a clock and find out what time it is. But long ago, telling time wasn’t so convenient. Shadows played a big part in time telling, based on how the shadows reflected on the earth. Sundials are an important part of time-telling history.

How to use a sun dial?

  1. Place your sun dial on a flat horizontal surface outside in the sun. Make sure that your sundial is in a place where it will be exposed to sun all day.
  2. Using a compass make sure you face the end of the sun dial with the N on it, north. To find true north, use a hand compass or your phone.
  3. When the sun hits the sundial you will start to see a shadow on the numbers! This shadow is how you will determine what the time is.

Please note that this sun dial has been made to suit Perth, Western Australia time (Southern Hemisphere). For custom cities please enquire.
