This nifty infographic shows you how to measure remaining daylight with your hand! Here’s how it works:

  • 1. Face The Sun

Face the sun and extend your arm in front of you so that your palm faces toward you and your fingers are parallel to the horizon.

  • 2. Position Your Index Finger

Position your index finger so that it rests just below the sun, and your pinky finger is parallel to the horizon.

  • 3. Count The Number

Count the number of fingers it takes to reach the sun from the horizon. Each ascending finger represents 15 minutes until the sun sets.

  • 4. If Space Allows

If space allows, line up your other hand directly below and continue counting. Each hand represents approximately one hour.

Be Merry

Because we like to look at the numbers!
