To determine the Sun rise/set positions World wide use this table here. Please note, it is also included on the instruction sheet that came with your Sun Compass.

For example : New York Mid May reads as 25N. This means the Sun rises and sets 25 degrees North of East and West respectively.


Having compensated for the variation, ignore the  radiating star lines and use the 2 outer vertical scales shown in the picture right >

This tree screen shows how the shadow changes during the year.

The diagram below shows that at some locations in the Winter
