The postcard sundial is designed for Bangalore. Perforations are provided for creating a gnomon by folding along the dashed lines. The gnomon stands vertically supported by the wedge, also made available, by perforations. The gnomon should point to north precisely. The shadow reads the local time. One needs to add 19minutes to get the Indian standard time. (Rs 5/-) There is a provision to use it for latitudes up to 18 degrees.

A vertical sundial is on display at the park. Here, instead of the conventional method of the shadow reading the time on the dial, the sunlight illuminates the dial through a slot. The north - south alignment was achieved by suspending two pendulums through the slot on the 24th April at noon, when the sun was exactly at the zenith.



The Horsehead nebula is a very interesting nebulosity in the constellation of Orion. This magnificient photograph of David Malin is made available as a 56cm x 42cm poster. (Rs 20/-)
