You can determine the sides of the horizon by the sun, stars and the moon.
In clear sunny weather, you can determine the sides of the horizon by the sun. About 7 a.m. it happens in the east, at 13 a.m. in the south, and about 19 a.m. in the west.
In the northern latitudes on summer nights, from the proximity of the setting sun to the horizon, the northern side of the sky is the lightest, the southern – the darker.
The highest position of the sun corresponding to noon can be determined by the shortest length of the shadow, and its direction in the Northern Hemisphere indicates the north, and in the South – to the south.
If there is a wristwatch with arrows, the sides of the horizon can be determined by pointing the hour hand at the sun. At this position of the watch, a straight line bisecting the angle between the clockwise and the number “1” on the dial indicates the direction to the south.
On a cloudless night, the sides of the horizon are most easily identified by the North Star, always pointing accurately enough to the north.
In light cloud cover, when the North Star is not visible, but the moon is clearly distinguishable, the sides of the horizon can be identified by it.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
