The Sun Circle, located in the center of Beach Bluff Park, is an astronomical sculpture. The stone sentinels, surrounding a central platform, mark the locations of the rising and setting sun on the solstice and equinox dates throughout the year as well as north and south directions.
To use the sculpture, stand on the central basalt stone disc. Look down to orient your direction by locating the north, south, east, and west markers (N, S, E, W). Next, locate the line, which passes through the sunrise and sunset equinox positions (E, W).
