Remark :
This sundial was made by the house inhabitant.
It celebrates the sun total eclips that was visible in this area on Aug, 11 1999 at 12h27.
It was installed a couple of months before the eclips.
It shows a scorching zun and a mocking moon that begins to hide it. Everything is contained in the motion of the shadow, so are the moon phases.
As complement, there is the motto, the fast flight of light, of life.
