  • The equatorial sundial is a classic "bow string" sundial using a thin rod with a nodus to tell both time and date. The nodus is a small disk with a hole in the center to let a beam of sunlight fall near the noon hour line on the equatorial ring. The equatorial ring (a semi-circle) as the rest of the dial is stainless steel, The dial is 12 feet (4m) at the base and 12 feet (4m) in height, forming a 45 deg triangle in profile.
