When it comes to navigation, we have discussed many different things such as the stars, geographical landmarks, and mapping. There is another technique that is a given and has been used by individuals who are explorers of land for generations and that is the sun. Every day the Sun will rise and set. If the Sun doesn't rise and set then none of us, have to worry about where we're going. The Sun will always rise in the east while resting in the West this is a great way to remember your directions. Once you know where East and West are located finding north and south is a piece of cake. Explorers in the pioneer years that traveled from the east coast of America to the west coast used the rising and set sun to help expand the country. The old phrase about the cowboy riding off into the sunset was the perfect example of the old west. Perhaps because the sun set in the west is why so many Westerners use that notorious phrase. Vice versa should you be heading east it is easy to follow where the sun rises in the morning and make sure it is at your back in the evening, and you know that you are traveling on the right path. By learning to know the positioning of the sun in the sky, you will also be able to utilize time naturally. Sundials can be made, but just the basic positioning of where the Sun is when one is familiar with it will let you know the estimated time of day. There are many different ways available to navigate today and to utilize and knowing as many of them as possible will help to give you the desired outcome of your course.
