Hi Shawn, I can't help you in "how" to realize it but I've my own idea in 
what the output should be.

As the sun would be a reference for a moving user, its datas must be given 
relatively to the user's header.
Loadstone can provide a key which gives something like:
"Sun position is: 1 degree in front of you, 13 degrees up to the orizont"
If this happen during the mornign time, you probably are travelling to the 
east direction.

Differently, we can provide a voice menu with absolute and more detailed 
info like:
Sun position referring to the north, sun azimuth, Sunrise and sunset time, 
distance from the earth and so on.

Is this sounds interesting for the LS comunity? In my opinion it gives 
Loadstone something more and usuful.
