Solar Calculator

Enter the latitude and longtitude of the location you require. (default has been set for Melbourne)
Enter time zone - EST = +10:00, CST = +9:30, WST = +8:00
Enter Magnetic Declination - [ click here for chart ]- i.e. melbourne = 11°E, adelaide = 8°E, Perth = 4°W

In the report generated the 'Altitude' is the angular measurement of the sun and the'Azimuth Angle' is its angle taken from true north clockwise.
'HSA' = horizontal shadow angle... 'VSA' = vertical shadow angle.
