    Re: Time of Sun & Moon rise and set

    Ron,

    Aside from the typo (2015 instead of 2016), looks like pretty much the same results.  I didn't go to the trouble to get the exact time of maximum altitude, but my estimate of 1124 only seems like a minute off.

    I just played some games at even higher latitudes, and it is nuts.  Sun rises and sets only once a year, and the time between culmination and transit is measured in months, not minutes.

    Stan
