Homework Help: Astrophysics: finding the azimuth the moment sun rises

  1. Jan 23, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Suppose you seen the Sun rise on the day of the summer solstice from latitude 43.5. What is its azimuth at the moment when it rises? (Note that to specify an
    azimuth, you can describe it as being so many degrees in a particular direction starting from
    a reference point on the horizon, e.g. 20 degrees south of the western point.)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm having a problem finding the altitude...any hints?
