The Q&A Archives: Placing Sundial

Question: How should a sundial be placed? (ie:arrow pointed to North??)

Answer: I would place the sundial so the time showing (where the shadow lands) matches the time of day (according to a clock). Then go out and check it at different times of the day, to see if it is indicating the proper time. That's the only way I can think of to be sure it is placed correctly!
