Week 2

Inspiration born from the sun, stars and South African poet CJ Langenhoven’s newspaper article on sundials, resulted in Danie du Toit building Napier’s most iconic landmark in 1965.

It took him 18 months to complete the meticulous markings for each minute, based solely on his observations of the shadow on the dial. His sundial hour-line calculator explains the corrections between the sundial’s time and standard time, determining the time within an accuracy of 30 seconds.

 
Question 3 - At which harbour in the Agulhas region can stingrays be fed by the public? 

Answer to Question 2 - The only vertical sundial in South Africa is situated in Napier.
