Easy-to-assemble sundial tells the time of day by the position of the Sun in the sky. Made of strong durable plastic, the sundial has a white flat disc with accurate hour lines, a metal gnomon which casts the shadow onto the surface, and supporting triangles.
As the sun appears to move across the sky, the shadow-edge aligns with different hour-lines. The gnomon must be parallel to the axis of the Earth’s rotation to remain accurate throughout the year.
Ideal for use in the garden, sundeck or even a sunny position indoors. An ornamental yet functional gift.
Made and designed in Australia, the disc can be rotated to adjust for Daylight saving time and the supporting triangles allow the face of the sun dial to be tilted for Northern and Southern Hemisphere latitudes. Suitable for age: 10+.
