Studying the Sun

How does the position of the setting Sun change?


  1. Several minutes before sunset, estimate where the Sun will set on the western horizon.  On a sheet of paper, draw prominent features, such as buildings and trees, to the north and south of the Sun’s estimated setting position.

  2. As the Sun sets, draw its position relative to the fixed features on the horizon.  Caution: Never look directly at the Sun; eye damage may result.

  3. Note the date and time of your observation on your drawing. 

  4. Return to the same position several days later.  Using the same drawing, repeat the activity and note the position of the setting Sun.  Wait several more days and do the activity one more time.

Think about it

  1. How did the Sun’s position at sunset change over the course of your observations?


  1. Based on your observations, predict where the Sun might set in several weeks time.  Sketch that location on your drawing relative to the fixed features on the horizon.
