The photo above shows an analemmatic sundial in Big Bay, Ontario, Canada. To find the time, a user simply steps into the sundial and stands on the current date shown in the scale in the middle – in this case it was November 15. You act as the gnomon, and your shadow shows the time. This sundial was designed and made by Steve Irvine and Bill Loney. The megalithic circle in the background is Keppel Henge.
