But I know where it is................it's up there, hidden by cloud most of the time!:rolleyes: Except at night, of course, when it's roasting Ross the Fiddler.

I have a sun compass on my wrist all the time - it's called a watch. Just point the hour hand at the sun (if you can find it) then halve the angle between the hour hand and 12 to get due south

That works for GMT you will need to use the 1 mark instead of the 12 in summertime.

This software will also tell you the sun's position at any location and time:

It is free :) for desktop use (PC, Mac, Linux) or $8.99 for iPhone.

I think a sun compass sounds like a good idea for trip planning purposes and sought one out. It's probably not as automatic as the phone app.
