Sunlight & Shadow—Building Your Own Sundial
Workshop Leader: William Francis Taylor, Montauk Observatory
Cosponsor, Montauk Observatory
For thousands of years, people have used sundials as a clock that never requires batteries or winding up—only a clear, sunny day. Learning how a sundial works teaches us how the sky around us moves and orients our lives in both time and space. Students in this workshop will be invited to build their own sundials from simple materials, gaining the knowledge they need to design dials suited to their own homes and gardens.
There is no fee for this program, however there is a materials fee $5 for both members and non-members.
Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
