Sun Position Map




    Please rate this app after trying it out, knowing that people like and use my apps is the only thing that keeps us free app developers going. If there are things you like, or want improved please say so in the comments.

    Shows position of the sun at any given point in time
    Shows position of the moon at any given point in time
    Position of sunrise and sunset for current day
    Position of moon rise and moon set for current day
    Position of the latest and earliest sunrise
    Position of the latest and earliest sunset
    Maps of type "map", "satellite", "hybrid" and "terrain"
    Compass to help determine where sun will be at any given date and time
    Save locations on map with notes
    Displays moon phase and illumination
    Change date/time with either a slider, or precise buttons.
    Shows field of view indicator in landscape and portrait modes
    Shows position of starts, constellations and Messier objects

    To access all of the settings options note that the settings can scroll both up and down and side to side.

    To use the compass, click the navigator icon on the right, and the heading indicator will turn on. Line up the heading indicator line with any of the sun line, sunrise or sunset lines, and the direction the phone is facing is the direction the sun will be. The compasses in phones are pretty inaccurate, you can usually increase the accuracy by moving the phone around in a figure-eight pattern. You can also gauge the accuracy by pointing the phone towards the sun and observing how far off it is.

    Permissions: This app doesn't require any extra permissions than what is absolutely necessary to function. It uses the Google Maps API which requires access to external storage and network access. Additionally it requires access to location data to show your current position. I do not track or collect any information about users of this app, but I cannot speak for any tracking or collection the Google Maps API does.

    Simple and quick way to check the position of Sun, Moon and Stars. Also times of sunrise/set for any day. Handy for astronomers, navigators, etc..

    When the map is tilted by two fingers, the compas should follow/synchronize with the map (forming ellipse shape, not stay in circle shape).

    Awesome app, only reason for four stars is battery drain. Was using both map mode and hybrid. Great for Hunter looking to scout stand locations from maps- where's sub going to be in my face? Great job developers
