|THURSDAY, MARCH 9 - WEB SITE: SUNRISE/SUNSET & MORE
I'm always getting requests for weather data and weather forecasts, but just as popular are requests for sunrise and sunset times.
The United States Naval Observatory maintains a great web site that has this information and a whole lot more. Moonrise and moonset times, information about phases of the moon, dates of solar and lunar eclipses, data about the positions of the sun, moon, and planets, times and dates when the seasons begin, it's all there.
The web site is: aa.usno.navy.mil/aa/data.
You can tailor the information you get to your city, for any month, day, and year. It's truly a one-stop shop for everything celestial.
