    Interesting, I was on my way home from fishing Aug 3 and when I caught the moment,
    I estimated sunset at GMT 19:29:04 Ap was N 64° 42'E 021°22'
    temp was 17°C and pressure was 1014milibar
    Kolbe's LTA for sun data and calculator gave me lop 2.4' towards and Az 313°.

    OK I admit,as I was within sight of land I cheated and used a quick kamahl (fishing line and a piece of 35x10x10mm wood) I adjusted line length so wood covered sun from left to right turned it 90° to estimate lower limb touching horizon.
