Polar Plot of Data

What do people use to plot polar data?  I see PolarPlot but it  
requires a function of r.  I see PolarListPlot but it assumes equal  
angles.  What I have is a list of azimuth and elevation of the Sun's  
postion at my longitude and latitude for each hour.  How can I plot  
these data points on a polar plot?  The data is generated in  
Mathematica so I would like to plot it in MMA.

One confusing detail--the 90 degree mark should be at the center of  
the graph and 0 on the outer edge.  This reflects the sun's motion  
and how we label the elevation.

Thanks for all help.
