That's quite a timely question, Phil...
John Brosnahan, W0UN, just posted a link on the TowerTalk reflector for a

Here's that link: http://www.solar-noon.com/
All you need are your longitude and latitude to plug into the webpage.

Subject: Topband: Beverage Antenna Direction
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Trying to obtain the direction my Beverage is pointed; I went out at
high-noon and laid a large protractor on the ground where the shadow of the
Beverage wire crossed the shadow of the post holding the wire. Is this not
the angle between true North and the Beverage wire? Is there a more accurate
way to measure without expensive equipment? Am I totally out in left field
