Last semester in my astronomy class, we tried to find an equation that would fit the path of the sun based on measurements we took, but we realized that due to the change in the tilt of the earth, it wouldn't be a simple sine or cosine graph, and we dropped the subject. I was wondering if there is any simple way, using spherical trigonometry, calculus, or something to calculate the equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks in advance
