Welcome to FindMyShadow.com. This site allows you to calculate the position and height of the sun anywhere
in the world on any date and plot the shadow cast by the sun at different times of the day.
Why? There are many applications, from house-buying with confidence, choosing a plot for your flowerbeds or vegetable patch with the best light/shade mix, planning an extension.
The tools enable you to see where your house and fencelines cast their shadows, to see what light you get in your garden. The site has also found use with photographers trying to identify the best time to visit a location for the light and shadows desired.
How? The site uses a series of astronomy calculations to find where the sun is relative to the earth's orbit, and relative to you on the earth's surface. Any time. It also alows you to see the shadows that are cast by objects you can specify in the drawing tool - for example your house.
This service is provided as is, without warranty or guarantee. Please note that you would be well advised
to validate the shadows predicted against an actual example for your site.
