I feel a fool for even asking this; my father is a Geography teacher, and I am supposedly well-educated in the sciences. But the only dumb question is the one not asked, so... I've never quite understood where the Sun actually rises and sets on the compass. It does not set due West (except at brief, specific times of the year). If I live at 45N lat. then: - at summer solstice, the sun rise to within ~22.5d of zenith at noon - at summer dusk, the sun will not set due West, it will set at ~22.5d North of due west - in the peak of winter, the sun will only rise to within 67.5d of zenith at noon - at winter dusk, the sun will set 22.5d south of due west Are these suppositions correct?
