    Hello Herman, you wrote:
    "Analemma.com has changed or is captured."

    Thanks for letting me know. I've edited my earlier post striking out that link. If it gets fixed, I'll let you know. It's definitely not 'captured'. The owner has sometimes used the primary address as a gallery for his app work, which is what you're seeing now. It was formerly the case that we had to use the full www address to get to the analemma content (that is, www.analemma.com vs plain analemma.com). Right now that doesn't work either and leads to a "blah blah" placeholder. I would guess that this was just an update error on the website at some point.

    In your case, Herman, I'm sure you've seen the content in question before since I have referenced it many times in the past few years and indeed going back over 20 years --including years before I joined the NavList community! I last posted about it nine months ago, and I think I'll quote a portion of that, with screen captures again, below...

    From my post on 5 Feb 2021:

    ... On archive.org, you can compare the 1998 version of analemma.com with it status in mid-October 2020, and it's almost identical. It was also an early example of a "concept website". Who would have thought to register a domain name for a concept like the analemma back then? 

    The site has now been updated to modern web standards, and it looks great. Bob Urschel apparently completed the update around the beginning of the year [c. Jan 2021]. He is also the author of a variety of aviation apps, which I am sure will interest some of you. Visit his personal website for a list. There are also apps related to the analemma, Analemma and Sungraph, for iPhones, iPads, and Macs (no Android or Windows).
