Point to where the sun sets on the equinox. How about sunrise on the summer solstice? Q15 of The Big Here Quiz

This year's equinox is on March 20 but luckily there's this online tool that calculates solar position and this tool that tells you sunrise and sunset times so I don't have to wait until then to give the answer: 270 degrees clockwise from North (Equinox) and 87 degrees clockwise from North (Solstice).

addendum: Yes - the sun sets almost due West.
