    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. I need to find the shortest shadow length and I stopped before I got this. Should I have done it from 12-2?

    Yeah solar noon is about 1311 Bst (manchester) today. You should have used gmt (or utc as astronomers call it) rather than Bst.

    Sorry you wasted your time
