How to tell how much sunlight is left with your hand

This nifty infographic (from The Art of Manliness) reveals how to measure the remaining daylight with just the fingers on our hand:

how to tell how much sunlight is left with your hand

1: Face the sun and extend your arm in front of you. Have your palm face toward you and your fingers parallel to the horizon.

2: Position your index finger so it rests just below the sun and your pinky finger is parallel to the edge of the horizon.

3: Count the number of fingers it takes to reach from the sun to the horizon. Each ascending finger is 15 minutes until the sun sets.

4: If space allows, line up your other hand directly below and continue counting. Each hand represents roughly 60 minutes.
