Long Description:
Analemmatic sundials are a type of horizontal sundial that has a vertical gnomon and hour markers positioned in an elliptical pattern. The gnomon is not fixed and must change position daily to accurately indicate time of day. Hence there are no hour lines on the dial and the time of day is read only on the ellipse. [1] As with most sundials, analemmatic sundials mark solar time rather than clock time. An analemmatic sundial is completely defined by:

- The size of its ellipse (chosen by the designer).
- The latitude of its location (determines the location of the hour markers on the ellipse).
- The declination of the sun (determines the daily gnomon position).
