High Noon

September 27

The Sun, in relation to 0° N Lat, is between 35° and 37° S of Vertical to level land surface here in El Paso, TX. The Sun shadow is cast by the face of a bldg at 320° (NE). The Sun is between 35° and 37° N Lat. (I use a 180° compass - no sextant avail). In my backyard, using magnetic N, the Sun is at Noon position at 13:23 hrs on Fri, 13:24 on Sat. [Note per Skymap at right this degrees south of Vertical for El Paso, TX seems correct, for 13:23 hrs. However, high noon is late!]
