This question comes from Joan Heinamen, she asks:
"What day will the sun reach 45 degrees on the horizon at zwip code 55066?"
It took me a little while to find these neat websites, but here you go Joan!
It appears that the sun will be at an elevation of 45 degrees in Red Wing, MN on March 19th at 12:55PM (and 32 seconds) and doesn't go back below 45 degrees until 1:40pm (and 23 seconds). It reaches a maximum height of 45.27 degrees at solar noon on the 19th, which occurs roughly around 1:17pm.
Here is another neat website:
This one is not quite as precise and doesn't have as many cities, but it has a nice layout. It shows that the sun will reach an elevation of 45 degrees by March 20th at Minneapolis. At that point, we'll almost have 12 hours and 11 mintues of daylight. On Tuesday, February 21st, we will have nearly 10 hours and 44 minutes of daylight with sun elevation of 34.5 degress at solar noon, which occurs at 12:24pm.
Thanks for the question Joan!
