Subject: Right Triangles - Trigonometry

We are currently studying solving right triangles in class and I would like my students to solve some real world application problems. I was wondering whether there is any special tool used to measure the angle of elevation of the sun or any other object of considerable height. We could use the protractor, but that seems like more of a guess. Thanks for any help.
