Equation of Time
This page provides a quick snapshot of the variability of the sun's motion over the course of a year.
While the sun's Equation of Time is not exactly
the same from year to year, for a given calendar
date the variation is relatively small, so data is only presented for a "generic" year.
For another way to view this variation that incorporates the sun's change in declination (i.e.
"celestial" latitude), please take a look at the sun's analemma.
For background on the Equation of Time, please refer to the
sundial corrections page.
