Have you asked your dad about it?
Mine says the Sun's in the same place as ever.
That leaves the dad scores tied.

You're thinking waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to deeply into this. The sun's path hasn't changed. Use Stellarium, go to any online Observatory, switch on the news, read the internet news.
Do you really want to spend a year to find out if the Sun's path has changed on the say-so of one man at a barbecue? A guy at a barbecue...who you don't even know!
Is that the level of evidence that justifies all you suggest? If you hurry, you can edit your post before anyone else sees it.

This spring, the Sun moved north, and within the same week as it has every year, for the past 10 years, it shined at just the right angle to keep my garage door from closing due to the sensors. Nothing has changed from what I see. Then again, maybe my house moved due to the gravitational pull of Elenin.
Edited to add: On a side note, wouldn't all sundials be broken now? They seem to be just fine. Unless, of course, there is a huge conspiracy where people are adjusting their sun dials to cover up the "truth"...LOL.edit on 29-7-2011 by navy_vet_stg3 because: See above.

This is kind of out there, but perhaps we are looking at this problem in the wrong way. What if the problem is the earth itself, and not it's tilt or the sun or anything else. What if SOME of the actual ground we stand upon is moving and shifting(faster than normal)? That would explain why some areas of the world seem to notice this phenominon(sun/moon in wrong place) while others do no

I thought the same thing this summer especially. Last summer I noticed it a little and decided to pay attention more. But yes this summer it is definitely setting in a different spot. I live in salt lake city and in previous summers the sun would set directly behind the great salt lake from the perspective of my house.

How is it you people actually 'know' the sun is in a different location. Also, would you mind explaining what that means (the sun being in a different location). So, does anybody have any actual data to base these assumptions on? Haha or is this going to be like the thread where everyone also the claimed the sun was a different color?
