Sky at Night Magazine - - THE SKY GUIDE -

An in­ter­est­ing way to show how the Sun’s po­si­tion changes in the sky is to record the po­si­tion of a shadow. The shadow could be of some­thing at­tached to a win­dow cast on a wall, or a stick cast on the ground. At the same time of day when­ever pos­si­ble, for ex­am­ple noon GMT on a week­end day, mark the po­si­tion of a dis­tinc­tive part of the shadow. Over the weeks and months that fol­low, the marked pat­tern will slowly re­veal the change in the Sun’s po­si­tion in the sky. Sur­pris­ingly, the shape looks like a skit­tle in a 10-pin bowl­ing al­ley! For more fam­ily stargaz­ing visit www.bbc.co.uk/cbee­bies/shows/stargaz­ing
