Sun and Moon Data for One Day

For information on the definitions of terms used, see Rise, Set, and Twilight Definitions or Phases of the Moon and Percent of the Moon Illuminated in FAQ.
If you need rise/set or twilight times for a series of dates, use our table program, which computes a one-page table covering an entire year.
The times of the phenomena are presented in the standard time of the place requested, using the current time zone of the place. Standard time in time zones was introduced in the U.S. in 1883, but the time zone boundaries have evolved considerably since then, with places shifting from one zone to another. There is no attempt here to track such changes.
Daylight time is implemented only for years 1967 and later, in accordance with the Uniform Time Act of 1966 and subsequent legislation. Daylight time is not used for places currently exempt from it.
