Complete Sun and Moon Data For ONE Day

Complete Sun and Moon Data For ONE Day [1]

A site brought to you by the U.S. Naval Observatory that declares: “You can obtain the times of sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, transits of the Sun and Moon, and the beginning and end of civil twilight, along with information on the Moon’s phase…”

Example of what you’ll get:
The following information is provided for Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio
(longitude W83.6,latitude N41.7):

28 April 2003 Eastern Daylight Time

Begin civil twilight 6:06 a.m.
Sunrise 6:35 a.m.
Sun transit 1:32 p.m.
Sunset 8:29 p.m.
End civil twilight 8:59 p.m.

Moonset 4:51 p.m. on preceding day
Moonrise 5:41 a.m.
Moon transit 11:41 a.m.
Moonset 5:52 p.m.

Phase of the Moon on 28 April: waning crescent with 7% of the Moon’s visible disk illuminated. New Moon on 1 May 2003 at 8:15 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Why is this site cool? Because you can set it to your specific area, put in your state and your city and get very specific information. You can also go worldwide. It’s very nifty, so put in the date and get started. Check out that sun and moon info or check out the rest of the Observatory’s site. Enjoy.
