Telling the Time by the Sun – An Enlightening Afternoon (CANCELLED)

Telling the Time by the Sun – An Enlightening Afternoon (CANCELLED)

Using the apparent movement of the sun to mark the passage of time goes back to antiquity. Before clocks were invented, sundials were used to record the time of day. Now they are mostly ornamental but can be amazingly accurate. Dr Marg Folkard (Sundials Australia) will tell us about sundials and we will visit two she has made, one in the ANBG, one at Mt Stromlo.
