I'm posting this just to confirm my intuition and internet research this evening.
I was asked on Friday to take the GPS units tomorrow and determine "Solar South" for a client installing solar panels. I was told that "Solar South" is 15 degrees west of "True South". Now I know that here in Massachusetts, the declination between True North and Magnetic North is approximately 15 degrees, so "Solar South" being 15 degrees west of "True South" did not make sense to me. After combing the internet, my intuition seems to be correct in that "Solar South" is the same as "True South". Am I wrong?
It seems like tomorrow should be a clear day, so I thought I would try a solar observation (only my second) with the TDS data collector and confirm it with static GPS occupations.
Any response is appreciated.
