** On a similar note, at 11:11 am on November 11th, in Anthem, Arizona, USA, sunlight shines directly through stained-glass disks mounted in five pillars (one for each branch of the U.S. military) at the Anthem Veterans Memorial. Most days, the sun's rays through the disks create a random collage of colored light on the Memorial's flagstones, but at that single moment each year, the colors line up to form the Great Seal of the United States.

* In the online multi-player expansion of ''VideoGame/{{Uru}}'', the wedges for the Pod Ages can only be acquired by jumping through a portal that appears for a few seconds at a time on a set daily schedule. In one of the Ages, beams of light from cracks in the Pod roof will fall directly on four marked spots on the floor when the time is right for the portal's appearance.

* In ''NaziZombies'', a ray of light points to the location of the Mystery Box, although it's not actually from the sun since it's visible in night-time maps.

* One of the puzzles in ''SoulReaver'' relies on this. In a twist, it requires you to do a typical mirror puzzle to get the beam where you need, then obscure it - which allows you to walk the shadow across a chasm.

* Egypt's Great Temple at Abu Simbel was constructed in such a fashion that twice each year, a beam of sunlight would shine deep into a narrow passage and fall upon an alcove in which idols to the site's patron deities were displayed. Subverted since 1968, when the entire temple was painstakingly relocated to a higher elevation to prevent it from being flooded by the Nile after the completion of a dam. Sunlight still penetrates the passageway twice a year, but on the wrong days.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. When Peter has to dig his old black book out of the attic, he has to set up a staff and crystal to focus the light and open a secret door.

* In ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'', a prophecy is quite clear that at a specific time, the moon will be caught between two constellations, and the door will open. The problem is that the moon won't pass between those constellations until the next night. The solution is to use your mirror to reflect the moonlight onto the door, which has the images of the two constellations on it.

* The two-parter CliffHanger that bridged the first and second seasons of ''CriminalMinds'' involved the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Serial Killer of the Week]] leaving elaborate clues for the team. One of these included a riddle that involved Middle English terms for times of day, and the shadow of a sword which is lodged in a corpse. Given that there is only one window in the apartment, they overthink this one and use a flashlight to find the exact spot. * In the ''CSINewYork'' episode "Manhattanhenge", the search for the Compass Killer's lair and his next target is guided by the suspect's obsession with angles of sunlight over the city. Subverted in that Sheldon calculates in advance where the sunlight will fall, rather than waiting to observe it.
