Roman Days but Linear

Published on

I recreated the exploration of Roman Days but in linear clock fashion!

In this reconstruction, the night is the gray section with midnight at the ends. The left represents the morning, and the right represents the evening. The colorful sections are the 12 equal hours of the day. Sunrise starts the first colorful section going from left to right. The end of the last colorful section represents sunset. The large, black marker is the current time. The smaller, hot pink marker is solar noon, which happens to be logical noon.

For the sake of comparison, here's the same clock but with 3 events in purple overlayed. The first is about 9am, the middle is about noon, and the right-most is roughly 5pm. This puts into perspective how much of sunny day is spent at work.
