The height of the Sun in Alaska at noon in early October

October 7, 2010

Ever wonder how high the sun is in Alaska at noon in early October? "Not too high" is the answer.

Height of the sun in the Alaska sky, October 6, 2010, at noon

As you can see, the sun isn't anywhere near straight overhead. My best guess is that it's about ten o'clock high, maybe a little lower.

It's just a wee bit hard to drive with the sun in your eyes ... where are my shades?! :)
