This image is based on photographs I took each week for a year from the same place at the same time. It shows the sun's position at 4:20PM by month and day. From it you can see the wide variation in the sun's position over a year.
Very interesting and informative shot ;)
Greetings from Russia.
Knowing at what time and where the sun is at different times of the year is good help in setting up many photo opportunities.

Larry, that is a great photo -- what a lot of work you put into that! I'm so impressed. How did you come back to exactly the same spot each time?
And Merry Christmas to you.
I do enjoy astronomy. It makes the world we live in seem so much more of a larger whole.
Living in northern latitudes , 53 N , I have long been aware that the sun sets further north as the year progresses towards summer and vice versa in the second half of the year. However the figure of eight path was unknown to me until I read this. Thankyou for an excellent illustration that made a difficult concept easy to understand.
Thank you Galatas. I am happy that this was helpful to you. Larry
