Odds and Ends, Randomly Useful and Totally Useless Ideas and Information

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.
