REAL SOLAR NOON ON THE LIGHT-MERIDIANE 3°7’45”

this is a list of the times of the solar noon up to the end of dec 2016 on the E 03°07’45” meridian // the exact time differs from day to day and from year to year // the earth’s orbit is not perfectly circular but slightly elliptical // in the course of the year, the sun moves along the ecliptic and not the celestial equator // this makes the sun seem to describe a figure of eight (analemma) with a deviation of -14’14” tot +16’26” // the solar noon on this meridian was calculated by dr jan cuypers, astronomer at the royal observatory of belgium
