Default How to find true south

could find out when local noon is at your house (try the Naval
Observatory's website) and see where the sun is at that time.

I enjoyed using a wall of my house as a sundial, especially since I was
installing solar panels, and I wanted to use a solar caluclator to predict
the output.


A few observations around the time that the shadow was cast directly along
the line of the house let me know the orientation of the house.

Today at my location, due south: Transit at 12:15:39
Today, the shadow will fall along my wall at about 1:45
