A way to determine direction
We can use the location of the sun in the sky in order to determine direction. Stand outside in the morning and look up at the sky (never look directly into the sun). Where is the sun currently located The sun rises in the east. Therefore, the location of the sun in the morning is towards the east. Compare this to the location of the sun in the sky in the late afternoon. The sun sets in the west. At noon local time, the sun is directly overhead.
