Orientation and navigation

with the help of the sun

determine the north with the help of a rod

You put a stick in the ground. Select the tip of the shadow (such as a stone).

Wait about half an hour and now marks the second new shade also.

Do this three times. Now the three points connect with a line. North is now perpendicular to this line.

This method is more accurate, the higher up the sun and the longer one takes its time.

On the southern hemisphere north and south you have vertauschen.Bei bad weather should not use this method.
