Note
* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired. The device’s compass accuracy can be optimised by calibrating it prior to use. See app’s FAQs for more help.

Milloin aurinko paistaa just tietystä suunnasta?
Miten pitkiä varjot ovat klo 14.00?
Milloin on kultainen hetki?
Näihin ja muihinkin aurinkoon liittyviin kysymyksiin löytää vastauksen tällä softall!

Sunseeker, opinion

Some wrong terms:
Elevation, must be Altitude
Morning to afternoon moment, must be Transit
Rose ofcourse Rise
Anyway the software is quite good!
