Sunlight & Shadow─Building Your Own Sundial with William Francis Taylor

July 27 @ 2:00 pm

For thousands of years, people have used sundials as a clock that never requires batteries or winding up—only a clear, sunny day. Learning how a sundial works teaches us how the sky around us moves and orients our lives in both time and space. Students in this workshop will be invited to build their own sundials from simple materials, gaining the knowledge they need to design dials suited to their own homes and gardens. Solar viewing via telescope may follow the program. Materials fee: $5 (paid at the door).

Co-sponsored by SOFO and Hamptons Observatory (

Program Leader: William Francis Taylor, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, MSc.

This FREE program is for adults, teens, and children ages 6+. Advanced reservations are required for all events.
