Azimuths of rising and calling of stars

In the beginning, I would like to introduce a charming video about the so-called photography technique as timelapse (it is also single-frame shooting, interval shooting or time-lapse shooting)

It’s good to take city landscapes, natural landscapes and other attractions. But how to try to remove the sunrise or sunset of the stars in an unfamiliar area. where did you come as a tourist?

This situation is quite common. And if sunrise or sunset, we can still predict the point where the moon rises, especially in an unknown city, is almost unrealistic.

Personally, I saw very little time lapse, where exactly the rising moon is shown, from the very top edge. Everywhere there is a shooting where in the first frames there is already a part of the moon. That is, the photographer first saw where it rises, then set up the camera and started shooting.

The practical application of this bot, I have so far seen specifically for the help of photographers or any kind of filming.

The bot allows you to calculate, based on the data obtained, the azimuths of sunrise and sunset of the two main luminaries - the moon and the sun. Thus, having arrived in an unfamiliar city and possessing a compass, at least manually, at least in the form of a program on your tablets, you can easily determine the point from where the Moon will rise.

With this knowledge you can always:

1. Set up the camera so that the landscape of sunrise or sunset is the most impressive.

2. Absolutely know where the moon or the sun rises. Even if you come to a completely unfamiliar city or village.

If you need to calculate the time (according to local time) of the sunrise and sunset of the stars, go to this page Sunrise Sunset of the Sun and Moon for any terrain

Usage Syntax

For users of XMPP clients

az City; date

City - a settlement near which you will monitor

Date - Date in the format Day / Month / Year

The answer contains data on the time (local time) of the sunrise or sunset of the Sun and the Moon, as well as their azimuths.

Recall that such an azimuth in our understanding is the angle that is formed between the direction to the south and the direction to the luminary, if the angle is kept clockwise. That is, if 90 degrees it is the West, if 270 degrees it is the East.

It works a little slowly (due to poor script optimization), so please wait for the results. The answer takes no more than 6 seconds.
