  Solaris - sunrise and sunset times

About this app

This easy-to-use app accurately computes the sunrise and sunset times based on your current location and current day of the year. Also, it can show both those times for yesterday and tomorrow if you tap the left or, respectively, right arrow buttons. Solaris works on tablets and smartphones connected to the Internet. At first, it gets the local coordinates (latitude and longitude) from your device's GPS and then retrieves the solar data from an Internet server. In addition to the time values we already mentioned, our app reads also the First and Last light times, Dawn and Dusk moments, Solar noon, Golden hour and Day length and show them when you tap the four-dots button. Thanks sunrisesunset.io for providing the accurate solar data.




How it works

When it starts, Solaris shows the sunrise time in the universal 24-hour format (tap this time once for the AM/PM format)
- Tap the Sunset button for the sunset time

- Tap the Four-dots button for more solar data
- Tap the Speaker button to enable/disable the text to speech feature
- Tap the Location button to update your GPS position (if it changed since the last run)

What the other solar data mean?

First light is the first appearance of natural light in the morning, before sunrise. It signals the beginning of a new day.

Dawn is the period of time between first light and sunrise, characterized by a gradual brightening of the sky.

Dusk is the period of time between sunset and nightfall, also characterized by a gradual darkening of the sky.

Solar noon is the time when the sun is at its highest point in the sky, and is directly overhead at the observer's location. It occurs at different times for different longitudes and occurs twice a year for a location on the equator.

The golden hour refers to the first and last hour of sunlight in the day, when the sun is low on the horizon and the light is soft and warm. Photographers often prefer to take photos during the golden hour because of the quality of the light.

Like sunrise and sunset, the timing of all these events depends on both latitude and longitude.
