Casper Wyoming USA Horizontal Dial 367
The horizontal dial is a bronze circle 13.4 inches in diameter with raised lines and numbers and mounted on an iron plate on a pedestal of green stone. The angle of the gnomon is roughly 20 degrees, and the hour lines are designed for a latitude of about 22 deg, clearly not designed for Casper's latitude of 43 deg N. See "Sightings" in NASS Compendium Vol. 6 No. 4, Dec 1999. Pedestal is of the same green stone as the Planetarium building.
 
Laramie Wyoming USA Horizontal Dial 159
An ornate 18 inch brass horizontal dial sits on a massive four-stone block pedestal. The dial has hour lines from 4am to 8pm, with hours in roman numerals. Time is graduated into 5-minute intervals. The 12-noon mark is 3/8 inch wide, allowing for the gnomon which is missing.
