Sunrise & Sunset Times

Share |

Weather conditions are a key consideration with all location shoots, and researching the climate is often one of the first tasks in selecting a shortlist of suitable locations.

Sunrise and sunset occurs when the top edge of the sun appears to be level with the horizon. These times can be successfully calculated using various astronomical formulae that make adjustments for the asymmetrical orbit of the earth around the sun and for atmospheric refraction at the horizon.

However it must also be noted that an unobstructed view of the horizon is practically impossible to achieve except at sea level looking out over an empty ocean.
