Product Details

Have you ever seen a figure-8 pattern on a globe and wondered what it was? This figure, known as an analemma, represents the path the Sun makes in the sky in a year's time. Using this ingenious activity, your class will measure and map the Sun's angle on an analemma graph and see the resulting figure-8 pattern of the Sun's location throughout the class year. Using the graph, students will then be able to determine the Sun's altitude and the Sun's declination angle for any calendar day of the year.
