Junior Editors Quiz on TIME QUESTION: When were sundial* first used? ANSWER: The sundial is believed to have been used in Babylon at least as early as 2000 B. C. The earliest description of a sundial comes from a Chaldean astronomer named Berossus, who lived about 300 B. C. To demonstrate the fact that the shadow ef an object will move from one side of the object to the other •s the sun moves from east to west during the day, he made a sundial. During the day, he found the shadow of the dial moved in a circular arc, and he divided this arc into 12 equal parts, which became 12 daylight hours. They were called temporary hours because they changed with the seasons. It was not until 1400 A. D. that equal hours were decided upon, when clocks were invented. Primitive peoples sometimes arranged stones in a way that indicates they were making huge sundials. At Stonehcnge in England, where scholars believe sun worshippers created monuments as early as 1800 B. C., there are three stones arranged in a special way to point toward the rising sun on the longest day of the year. FOR YOU TO DO: The boy in our picture is studying a garden sundial and watching the shadow that falls from the piece of metal in the center. You can experiment with your own sundial if you take a circle of cardboard and a piece of metal, and point the metal toward the North Pole. (Lael Miller, of Duluth, Minn., is the observing young astronomer who asked the question that brings a $10 reward.
