Sun Locator

For some time now I've been looking for a simple application that would enable me to plan my location, at any given time, according to the position of the sun, (esp. at sunrise and sunset).

Finally I turned to Stephen Wolfram's inspirational new "Wolfram Alpha Widgets" site in order to build my own. The site is based on Stephen's new WolframAlpha search engine. Although still in its Beta version it's sufficient to enable the rapid build of some pretty impressive applications.

Simply enter the date and time and either the location's name or it's latitude and longitude; press submit and voila the application displays the sunrise, sunset, altitude, azimuth and location relative to the horizon throughout the day.

Enjoy.
