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 2 - Where is the only vertical sundial in South Africa situated? 

Answer to Question 1 - The Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet at the southernmost tip of Africa.
