Battle Point Astronomical Association’s Sundial
PHC’s latest community project will cast a long shadow. Our crews have been building the concrete foundation and pedestal for an enormous sundial sculpture constructed in Battle Point Park on Bainbridge Island. The dial’s swooping crescents were crafted by a local metal fabricator. This 10-foot, metal and stone sundial demonstrates the ancient art of chronometry by actually keeping time. The project has been in the works by the Battle Point Astronomical Association for nearly five years, and when complete will sit on the berm just north of the Ritchie Observatory. You can track the sundial’s progress at the BPAA’s website, where regular updates and photographs are posted.
