The orientation of the sun

Sun - a good reference, since ancient times, man servant. However, many ordinary people who had never before confronted with orientation to the sun - are experiencing difficulties. In this article we will just try to fill this gap.

If a sunny day - then all is not bad. If you have a right arrow coming hours - even better. To learn how to know the direction the compass with a wristwatch and the sun, read here.

If no hours, all the more difficult. However, there are options. During the stay you can install something like a sundial, in this case, working as a sun compass. Enough to stick a stick in the ground and mark the point of the shadow. After some time (while you relax or are building a camp), a shadow move. Now it suffices to note the second point of the shadow. Having a start and end points shadow line, we get an east-west axis. Given that the sun is always from east to west, is not difficult to discern the direction of the compass, and behind them, and north and south. (If you become the face of the north, back to the south, east to the right, left West).

Orientir sun

Is also quite easy to define the eastern and western areas of the early morning and at sunset. And by defining the corners of the world, its strategy to build traffic to a meeting and save civilization.
