__Geocoin - Summer Time (Sundial) AC


Description: The height of summer brings on the glory of beautiful mornings, restful afternoons, and leisurely evenings where the twilight lingers. This indicates that the time has come for us to bring you a coin that celebrates the sun that is at the heart of these lazy summer days, both through the stylized sun on one side, and the working analemmic sundial on the other!

In honor of the Groundspeak Geocaching Block Party the sundial has been calculated for Seattle, Washington (it will provide reasonably accurate time readings at similar latitudes). To use the sundial the coin is laid on a level surface with the compass design aligned with true north. A small gnomon (a toothpick works well) is placed on the dot for the current month and the time is read off the elliptical dial.

This geocoin is trackable at www.geocaching.com and has its own icon.

Size: 1.75" (44 mm)
