Apparent Time synonyms
Part of speech:
Solar time as measured by the Sun's actual position with respect to an observer's local meridian and equal for any observer to the hour angle of the Sun at that location. Sundials register apparent time, which differs continuously with the observer's longitude and is not standardized across a time zone. Each degree of longitude represents a difference of four minutes in apparent time. Because of irregularities in Earth's orbit and the tilt of its axis, a day as measured by apparent time varies somewhat in length throughout the year. &diamf3; The moment when the Sun crosses an observer's local meridian is called the apparent noon .
Solar time as measured by the position of the mean sun with respect to an observer's local meridian. Like apparent time, local mean time differs continuously with the observer's longitude and is not standardized over a time zone. However, a day as measured by local mean time does not vary in length throughout the year—it is always 24 hours.
