    When I've been a mate on various boats, I've made the duty person
    calculate sunset using the Nautical Almanac.
    We do flags at that time (more or less).
    Of course, we use Google as a double check.

    Wake up your phone and say, "OK Google". If it vibrates briefly, immediately 
    say, "What time is sunset on May 1st?" Does it answer you? Though it seems a 
    cheat, this is by far my favorite way to track the changing time of sunset 
    and to decide when the chickens will be ready to roost. I don't care about 
    specific definitions (sun center at true horizon, sun center on theoretical 
    sea horizon, sun upper limb below actual sea horizon, etc.), and neither do 
    the chickens.
