    Does the clocks going forward mean that now noon is around 1pm? I just wasted 2 hours recording shadow lengths from 11-1 for gcse astronomy shadow stick coursework and all the results are wrong. Should I have done it from 12-2?

    Well we are now in GMT + 1 (Or BST), so 12 is actually 1. But your local noon will still be the same, so you can just convert the time into GMT if you've found it.

    If I'm correct, are you trying to work out your local noon by finding the shortest length?

    Although I haven't studied this stuff for a while, but I'll go over it again when I revise next week.

    Edit: Next time, post on the physics forums, you're more likely to get a qualified response.
