This Java applet displays the azimuth of the Sun and the Moon at rise or set

Simple applet version: Azimuth of the Sun at rise and set




You may use the keys m, d, h to increase the month, day, or hour,

or shift key and md, h to decrease the month, day, or hour.

Click into the applet area first !



Select latitude (northern positive, southern negative),
and longitude (eastern negative, western positive)
from the menus:

latitude longitude
Write table
                draw
Select from the "Write/Draw" menu.


U. L. means "Upper Limb" (just visible at rise and set).
Rise 1° means visible at 1° above horizon after rising
Set 1° means visible at 1° above horizon before setting.

Select from the "Table..." menu:

Check out the maximum and minimum azimuth or declination values of the Moon changing over the years and showing a period of about 18.5 years !

The diagram is also suited to read the approximate dates of New Moon and Full Moon.

The gaps of the moon curve are resulting from the fact that there is one day every month without moonrise and one day without moonset.

Major and minor northern and southern moonrise azimuth
