Fredericton New Brunswick Canada Vertical Dial Dial 397
A vertical declining dial 7 x 7 feet with parged cement face and 5 foot wrought iron gnomon. Plaque on wall reads "The sundial at the top of this wall is a faithful reconstruction of the original which Frederictonians used during the 1800s and early 1900s. The shadow cast by the gnomon (style) onto the dial accurately displays local apparent solar time." An equation of Time is included on the plaque to determine mean time. The date of the original construction of this sundial is not known, but the Soldiers Barracks were built in 1826. The dial was restored in 1992.
St. Louis Missouri USA Vertical Dial Dial 396
A vertical decliner at the top of the Cupples I building. Given by the class of 1908. Can be seen from the courtyard of Robert S. Brookings building. In 1908 the campus newspaper, the Washington University Student Life, commented that "The new sun dial on Cupples I is now being put into position upon the tablet on the south side of the building?It will be interesting to note the discrepancy between sun time and standard time by comparing with the Varsity clock [a large time piece situated high on the west wall of Brookings Hall, with both clock and dial visible in the quadrangle]." Today the Baumont Pavilion, erected in 1965, blocks a close view of the ornate tablet and dial. Use binoculars from a distance.
St. Francesville Louisiana USA Horizontal Dial Dial 394
A small 9 inch diameter brass horizontal dial sits on top of a cast iron pedestal. The dial face is worn, but readable with Roman numerals and 5-minute graduations. The dial plate is rotated about 40 degrees east of North. To the south of the gnomon is a 2 1/2 inch diameter mirror with unknown use. On left and right of the gnomon is scroll engraving of the equation of time. The dial sits on a 3 foot cast iron pedestal, painted adobe-red. A matching adobe-red dome cap with 8 sides covers the dial. Cap has an acorn handle lift.
Fort Union New Mexico USA Compound Dial Dial 393
A 2 foot square stone horizontal dial on a four foot high stone pedestal with vertical dials on its faces. This dial has been removed, replaced and relocated several times. The original gnomon was lost and replaced with an incorrect 45° gnomon, which has been replaced again with a steel gnomon that appears to be at slightly less than the correct latitude angle. All vertical dial gnomons are missing. The dial and a nearby inscribed stone are on the grounds of the Third Fort Union (1863-1891). The stone dial surfaces are worn from weather, but the Arabic hour numerals are still visible.
Lloydminster Alberta Canada Horizontal Dial Dial 392

Guaymas Sonora Mexico Equatorial Dial Dial 388
Dial is of stone, carved in a thick semi-circle ring about 200 degrees in extent. Dial is 36 inches in diameter and 10 inches thick. The inner rim of the dial is a "vee" shape. The gnomon is an iron rod protruding from the equatorial ring at the 12-hour mark, and at the center of the ring turns at a right angle to align to the north pole. The massive stone dial is set on a masonry block pedestal 40x40x20 inches. The pedestal is neither level nor cardinal.
Jackson Mississippi USA Horizontal Dial Dial 387
A large, 4-foot (1.2m) brass horizontal dial with clean lines. Time is marked in quarter hours from 5AM to 7PM. Hours are in Roman numerals. Dial sits in the middle of an octagon dais supported on a square concrete block. The gnomon is a simple blade, but the engraving on the dial says "Lat 39.3 N" and is clearly wrong. The dial honors Billy Jim Thompson for his support of the Academy. He died in 2014 at the age of 91.
Pine Mountain Georgia USA Analemmatic Dial Dial 386
Interactive analemmatic dial set in an herb garden. Visit website
Dallas Texas USA Horizontal Dial Dial 385
This is large horizontal dial with a 20-foot-long polar gnomon that rises obliquely from the center of a 34-foot-diameter circle. The hour lines are embedded in the terrazzo pavement showing hour marks and quarter hour ticks. Hour labels (standard time 6-7 and daylight-saving time 7-8) are etched into 12-inch diameter stainless steel plates, each tipped toward the dial's center and supported on a 6-inch-high bollard. The tick marks run further, extending from 5:30am to 7:15 standard time. Hour marks and labels are offset for site longitude, making the time correction between solar and civil time no more than +/- 15 minutes, depending on season. The stainless-steel gnomon has a rectangular cross section that tapers from 12 x 4 inches at the base to 4 x 4 inches at the upper end. The center of the gnomon's shadow (not the shadow's edge) indicates the time. The terrazzo circular plaza is slightly beveled (a squat cone) for proper runoff of rain. The cone's apex coincides with the base of the gnomon and is 10 inches higher than the circumference of the 34-foot circle. The layout of time lines takes this radially sloping surface into account. The terrazzo pavement also includes an embedded polar map of the world adjusted in longitude so that the longitude of Dallas with a star at the dial's location in Texas is due south of the gnomon.
East Lansing Michigan USA Analemmatic Dial Dial 384
This garden analemmatic dial uses plants to mark time with plants selected to demonstrate bio-rhythms by their daily opening and closing at different times. Four-o'clocks are planted at the 4 block. Magic evening primroses 'Tina James' encircle the area. Flowers open in 15 seconds to the sunlight, quite a spectacular sight! Also planted here are: Evening Primroses, Portulaca 'Sundial', Coreopsis 'Sunray', Morning Glory, Thyme, Four-O'clock, and Moonvine. Children cast their shadow to tell the time. Step between the blocks of the current month, raise your right hand, and your shadow tells the time. The analemmatic dial is set up for daylight saving time.
Syracuse New York USA Armillary Sphere Dial 382
A 10 foot 2 inch diameter armillary sundial made of black anodized steel.

St. Mary's City Maryland USA Equatorial Dial Dial 374
Cement half-cylinder acting as an equatorial time ring with an inside radius of about 18 inches and a concrete gnomon 5 inches thick that looks more like a piece of lumber set on edge than a gnomon. There is no nodus such that the gnomon shadow is a straight line on the wide equatorial band. The cylindrical inner face is stainless steel with an engraved grid of quarter hours and months. The hours are marked in Arabic every half hour and at every hour is a graphical curve of the equation of time (EOT). Using the time of month, one reads across from the month mark to the EOT, giving the time offset. All in all, a very clear way of integrating the EOT with the hourly shadow.
Hollywood Maryland USA Horizontal Dial Dial 373
A 26 inch hexagonal, English-made slate horizontal dial with a 3/8-inch thick, knife-edge bronze gnomon and no noon gap. Dial face has hour, half-hour and quarter-hour marks in inner bands, and 3-minute marks in the outer band. Hours are marked with Roman numerals. The dial sits on a hexagonal pedestal carved with coats-of-arms of families that lived at the plantation, including the Plater, Briscoe and Satterlee families. The dial face has four concentric bands of hour numerals. The outer band reads local time with an inscription that notes local noon is also noon at Boston, Peru and C. Redondo, and midnight at Borneo and Chinese Tartary. The second band shows noon in New Zealand, London and other locations.

See NASS Compendium Vol. 6 No. 3, Sept. 1999.
Reston Virginia USA Horizontal Dial Dial 369
A modernistic seven foot diameter flagstone horizontal dial with hour lines. The design features a gnomon of folded stainless steel plate. Gnomon is truncated too short for shadow to reach edge of dial face. See "Sightings" in NASS Compendium Vol. 6 No. 4, Dec 1999.
Denver Colorado USA Vertical Dial Dial 368
On the southwest side of the Emerson School Building (now an office building and historic landmark) is a large white stone vertical dial with a stone gnomon. The large stone dial is part of the original brick building erected in 1884. Local history holds that the original architect was somewhat staid and stuffy and only agreed to include the sundial "because of its educational value." The dial was restored when the building was refurbished. See "Sightings" in NASS Compendium Vol. 6 No. 4, Dec 1999.
Casper Wyoming USA Horizontal Dial Dial 367

Enid Oklahoma USA Equatorial Dial Dial 351
A striking stainless steel equatorial dial 6 ft tall, 4 ft wide, and 6 ft deep. The equatorial ring is more than 2 ft wide. The dial can be used as a simple equatorial dial, reading the hour from a shadow cast by the steel wire gnomon aligned to the polar axis. However a bead nodus located in the middle of the wire casts its shadow onto the equatorial ring as well. An analemma on an arched plate is set to slide along the equatorial ring in a track. By sliding the plate to a position where the nodus shadow falls on the analemma for the day of year, the dial corrects for the Eot. Markers on the analemma plate point to the correct time at the edge of the ring. The top of the ring is inscribed for Central Standard Time and the bottom is inscribed for Central Daylight Time. Overall, the sundial is accurate to about a minute any day of the year. The analemma was computed by Lt Col Bill Welker, USAF and the dial was funded by McCasland Foundation.
Banica Dominican Republic Vertical Dial Dial 350
A small pillar dial with a vertical dial on one face. The dial markings sit below a triangular crown inscribed with the date MDCCVC, showing 1795 as the year it was carved. Today, the bottom portion of the pillar appears to be reconstructed and the gnomon is missing.
San Juan Puerto Rico USA Vertical Dial Dial 349
A round pillar supports a rock cube with vertical dials on all four faces. This is one of the oldest in the Americas, erected by the Spanish around 1645 during the rule of Fernando de la Riva y Aguero. The vertical dial cube was crowned with a weather vane on top. This sundial was the first to be installed in the Antilles and was probably the second sundial to be placed in the New World.
Santo Domingo Dominican Republic Pillar Dial Dial 348
At the upper end of a tapering pillar is a rock cube with vertical dials on two faces. The dial was erected during the administration of Francisco Rubio y Pernaranda around 1753 in front of the Governor's Palace and was used during the centuries of Spanish rule as the official marker of time. An equatorial dial was placed on top of the cube probably around 1787 and was later broken off by a hurricane. In 1992, as part of the Fifth Centennial Discovery activities, the equatorial dial was reinstalled on top. Dial sits atop a mortar or rock block.
Salt Lake City Utah USA Obelisk or Vertical Gnomon Dial 347
A 24 foot tall azimuth dial in a complex sculpture comprising a light projection gnomon within a 36 foot diameter base with numerous additional shadow-casting structures. The "Asteroid Landed Softly" sundial sculpture was created in 1993 by architect Kazuo Matsubayashi. The sculpture symbolizes the concepts of space and time: space as a large boulder (asteroid) sitting on a square pedestal; and, time as an azimuth sundial that shows the path of the sun through the day and seasons.
Ypsilanti Michigan USA Horizontal Dial Dial 346
The original horizontal dial and gnomon of 1909 was cast in iron as a gift from the Class of 1908 (then known as the Michigan State Normal School ). This dial is now in the EMU archives.[See NASS Dial #1086] The current sundial was placed in the same spot in front of Serzer Observatory in the 1960's, but went missing after a broken gnomon was sent for repair, and was lost for 30 years. In 1999, during the sesquicentennial celebration of the university, EMU had the sundial restored by Arnets Becker Burrell Monuments of Ann Arbor. They also had the sesquicentennial logo added to the pedestal. The restoration was funded by the Serzer family. The elegant weathered brass and copper dial is now known as the "Sesquicentennial Sundial". Surrounding the dial are lines in the granite plinth to the cities of Montreal, Detroit, Boston, New York, Whittington DC, Toledo, New Orleans, St. Louis, Chicago, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Lansing, and MT Pleasant. The original Class of 1908 4-ft (1.2m) granite pedestal still holds the sundial, including its mark of "150 years".
Greenwich Connecticut USA Horizontal Dial Dial 345
Large horizontal dial is 130 ft. diameter and uses 15 hour stones to mark the time. Dial designed by Shope Reno Wharton Associates and built by sculptor Mark Mennin of Bethlehem, CT. The striking gnomon is a bronze tapered spike 8 in. at the base and 35 ft. 2 in. in overall length set in a 4 ft. bronze web, producing a 20 ft. high tip above the average grade. The noon stone is a flat marble slab 5 ft x 8 ft with a center score line. The 14 other hour stones are sculpted marble, each about 3 ft x 5 ft, abstractly depicting the progress of mankind's social progress across time. Only the first and last stone are marked with a time arrow. On the ground are two marble cubes with didactic bronze plates. Dial is adjacent to a pair of bronzed driftwood horse sculptures (full size). Dial site will be the first stop on the Bruce Museum school tour route. Gift from the Millennium Committee to the city of Greenwich
Boise Idaho USA Equatorial Dial Dial 344
Equatorial dial 5 ft high, 6 ft. wide and 4 ft. deep. The dial was designed by Pete Swanstrom, built and donated by JST Custom Fabrication Inc. of Boise. The gnomon is of unusual design with a central pivoting elliptical plate and analemmatic cut out. The analemma is marked with 365 individual date marks. Shadow falls on equatorial ring with hours marked from 7am to 7pm and inscribed with lines for every minute (spaced 1/7 inch apart). Indicates time to less than 15 seconds, making it among the most accurate sundials in the world. Indicates true time to the minute, date to the day, and adjusts for Daylight saving time. The Latin inscription should read "Tempus Captum" rather than "Tempus Captus".
Halifax Nova Scotia Canada Armillary Sphere Dial 343
This armillary sphere, made of steel and brass, is approximately 2 meters tall. The dial is the result of a collaboration between students from the 1997 Industrial Engineering class of the Technical University of Nova Scotia (now called DAL TECH) and a local shipbuilding firm who did the construction. The theme of industrial engineering is reflected in the cogwheel-like metal rings used in the construction. Initials of every classmate are punched into the cogs. On the plinth is the Equation of Time.
