|Summary:||This script calculates the times of Sunrise and Sunset on Earth.|
|Description:||This script calculates the times of Sunrise and Sunset on Earth, on the actual Celestia simulation date, accurate to the minute within several centuries of the present. It correctly describes what happens in the arctic and antarctic regions, where the Sun may not rise or set on a given date.|
Note: This script works with Celestia 1.6.1 (or higher) only.
It also works with Frank Gregorios's Celestia160-ED.
V1.2 (Jan. 2012) is an update with improved static location processing.
V2.0 (Jan. 2013):
* Sunrise and Sunset Calculator for Earth also enabled as a plug-in for Lua_Edu_Tools and Lua_Plugins.
* The script has been internationalized, supporting different languages.
* The script now uses a configuration file for personalization purposes.
* Bugfix: "1583 Calendar reform" removed from calculation. Dates prior to 1-1-1583 are calculated more accurate now in Celestia.
