How to determine Noon time?


Celestial meridian

Noon time here refers to solar noon. Solar noon is the moment when the sun transits the celestial meridian – roughly the time when it is highest above the horizon on that day. The celestial meridian is a great circle on the celestial sphere passing through the celestial poles and an observer's zenith. At northern hemisphere, the sun will be at south at noon.
