Franz Maes sundial site has pictures of lots of lovely sundials in the Netherlands and around the world
Time Zone Master is a new (and free) programme of great interest to everyone interested in sundials - and to a much wider public. For sunddiallers, it gives you clock time (corrected for daylight saving), the equation of time, the longitude correction, and local apparent time (solar time/sundials time) for locations all over the world. And you can select any date past or future for this information. It also gives a wide range of astronomical information about the sun, the moon and its phases, and the equinoxes and solstices. This programme is a must!
Relojes de Sol is a large site in Spanish by Paquita Vecina Romero. It has extensive descriptions of the types of sundials and their history, together with interesting photo-galleries of sundials in the provinces of Cadiz and of Malaga, and a selection from other parts of Spain and other countries. There is also a sundial tour of Florence
The monthly magazine for clock collectors, repairers and makers worldwide

Astrolabes are related both astronomically and historically to sundials. This is a new web site which explains the basic principles, uses and history of the astrolabe.
Another interesting site is
CLOCKS and TIME by Gordon Uber which provides a launching point to a whole different area of knowledge.
A site in German with some interesting pictures is www.blue-print.ch/sonnenuhren.htm
Pekin, Illinois, USA Here in Pekin Illinois USA we have a sun dial consisting of nine short analema and one great analema for noon. The great one indicates the months days and lots more. It occupies a space about 40 meters long and 30 meters wide. (guesses). Each short analema indicates the hour begging at 8 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. In addition we have a model of Uranus which is part of the worlds largest planetary exhibit. The sun and other planets are located in cities nearby. I will be glad to supply more detail on request.
