calculating sun exposure in October

WendyB(5A/MA)October 4, 2009

If I am trying to estimate how many hours of sun a certain spot gets and its already October and the sun is definitely lower in the sky, about how many hours offset do you think there is between October and June?

For example, if the sun comes around to a NW-ish spot 3-4 now, can I assume maybe 1-2pm in peak season? Am trying to figure out if its more N or more W.

This link is to a little Java tool I like, an applet that lets you calculate sun angles at any day and any time of day. It's not completely user-intuitive, I usually have to fiddle with how I put information in the boxes before I use it, but it should do the trick.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sun Shadow Applet
