What is solar noon?
Solar noon is the actual moment that the sun transits the meridian at a given location on earth. It is the moment when the sun reaches its highest elevation on a given day at a given place. This will not necessarily happen at the moment of 12 noon measured by standard time. Time zones are more than a thousand miles wide at the equator, and standard time is the same throughout the entire time zone. The sun can't be at its highest point all across a thousand miles of equator at the same moment.

noon starts at 12:00pm. morning ends at 11:59am.
Solar noon shadows are longer in winter than in summer. The solarnoon shadow in summer is at its shortest length when the Sun is atit highest point along the ecliptic.
It depends on what the date is. During the European summer ( or ozzie winter ) the sun will be north. During ozzie summer sun is south. At the equinoxes the sun will be dead o…verhead and won't give any indication of where north is.
The same as local apparent noon. When the sun is the highest in the sky. This is true. However; to be more specific solar noon is half way between sunrise and sunset. It's at …solar noon that a point gets the most direct sunlight of the day. To calculate solar noon you find out how many hours of daylight there are between sunrise and sunset and divide by 2. Add the quotient to the sunrise time and that will give you the solar noon time.
At the "sub-point" of the Sun; when your latitude equals the Sun'sdeclination. The Sun will be straight up at that location. It depends on the time of year of course. For exa…mple, on the Tropic of Cancer or Tropic of Capricorn thishappens at the summer solstice there. At the equator it happens twice a year, at the equinoxes.
Highest in the sky.
That varies, depending on the time of the year, and on the latitude.
Noon is the hour of 12:00 in an observer's local time zone, or more loosely, a time near the middle of the day when workers in many countries take a meal break. The scientifi…c term solar noon describes the moment when the sun crosses the meridian in apparent solar time, the time during a day with the highest sun elevation, which depends on longitude, latitude and date. The opposite of noon is midnight . approximate solar noon This formula must be incorrect as it does not change as you go through the year. The solar noon follows a two cycle wave pattern across the year. By, Abhishek Mandal Class-IX, D.A.V.

It takes time for the land to heat up.
In New York
Local solar noon in New York State is almost never when the clock says 12:00. That's one of the things we sacrificed when we introduced time zones in the 1880s. People at that… time realized that it was far preferable to be up to a half hour or 45 minutes off from actual noon than for every city to have its own time. The only part of New York where local solar noon coincides with 12:00 Eastern Standard Time is along the line of 75Â° west longitude, but even that is true only during the four months per year that we're not using daylight saving time.
In Time Zones
No. Today, the scientists still don't know the answer for that question. It's been a mystery for all of us for many, many years. Only, heavenly Father might know the answer.
Solar Noon is when the sun is highest in the sky, or closest to zenith, so there would be no direction of shadow, it would be under your feet. To test this yourself on Nov. 22… the solar noon in NYC will be at 11:42:15, go find out for yourself.
