Abstract

Can you tell when noon is? Maybe you’ve heard that noon is when the sun is at its highest point in the sky. Is the sun highest at 12 PM IST for you? Generally, the sun is highest at your location before 12 PM IST if you are in the eastern part of India, and after 12 PM IST if you are in the western part of India. So 12 PM IST may not be your local noon.
