The Grandfather’s Method Of Calculating The Time Until Sunset

How easy is it to know how much time is left until the moment when the sun disappears below the horizon and begins to darken? It doesn’t matter whether you are on a hike or just relaxing somewhere in nature, it is advisable to prepare in advance for the night. There is a very simple way to tell the time before sunset, and for this you only need your hand.

So, all you need to do is extend your hand so that the sun seems to lie on your index finger.

Now we count the number of fingers to the horizon. If you have a more or less standard finger thickness, then each finger will be approximately 15 minutes before sunset.

Those who have fingers of a completely non-standard size can be advised to carry out the experiment once, noting the time it takes for the sun to go down 1 finger down.
