"Lahaina Noon" in Honolulu, Part 1

If you do a google on "lahaina noon" you'll be able to read up on a phenomena that happens in areas between the Tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. I couldn't get my hands on a celestial bodies almanac - but I did know the general time the sun would be over head at noon (yesterday +/- a couple of days). This was yesterday just past noon - pretty cool that not much of a shadow was cast. So the sun will continue tracking north until the summer solstice, and then sometime in July we'll get another of the "no-shadow at noon" days.
