Correction

Several clever readers pointed out an error in the Dec. 29, 1998 Kidspace ("It's about time," pgs. 22-23, by Suman Bandrapalli). At noon, the angle of a stick stuck in the ground and pointed directly at the sun does not equal the stick's latitude. This angle may be used to determine the stick's latitude, however, with the help of astronomical tables. This was an editing error. We apologize.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
