Special Features:
- several informative, at-a-glance views, such as Sun Data for two weeks and Next Full Moon
- reports if the Sun or the Moon never sets or rises at a location on a certain day
- uses your phone's timezone and Daylight Saving Time

Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

Oceano Inc.

This app shows you where and when sun goes up and sun goes down on map anywhere you go.
It also shows time for moon and other information including age for moon.

Rotation map mode enables you to easily find the direction of sunrise or sunset on your actual heading.

World wide elevation data set from NASA SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission) is integrated within app.
Elevation is achieved, and time calculation is more accurate even without network connection and it works for world wide locations.

- Shows time of sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, and indicates current sun and moon position.
- Shows time of civil twilight, nautical twilight, and astronomical twilight.
- Shows age of moon, illumination, and date of nearest full moon.
- Moon phase is drawn to show the state of moon visually.
- Shows information on any location you point on map.
- Shows elevation (height above sea level) of the location, address, and time at the location with timezone consideration.
Elevation is achieved from either USGS, GIS of Japan, or integrated SRTM data sets.
SRTM dataset is in customized form and compressed within app, so that elevation of any location world wide can be achieved, and calculation of time is more accurate. No network access is necessary with SRTM.
- Date, location, and elevation are taken into account with calculation of rise and set time.
- Street address can be shown when available. It is useful for places you travel and need to know your location when calling taxi or facing accidents.
- You can change the date and time, and see the info on exactly the time you specify, for your travel planning or for any needs.
- Supports Apple Watch app and complications. Time of rise and set, direction, current position and moon phase is shown on your watch for your current location. It also shows more details for date of new and full moon, current illumination.
* Apple Watch does not tell its device magnetic heading. The direction and current position screen shows north up only.
* You can change frequency of background refresh for complications from context menu on watch app by force touch.

Best companion for outdoor situation for photographer, hiking, mountain climbing, fishing, sunrise and sunset watching, and can provide information for travel planning.
