Description

AVIA Moonrise is an application that presents an accurate moon phase and the official sunrise, sunset, moonrise, and moonset times for any place on Earth and for any date between Jan 1,1900 and Dec 31, 2099.

The application instantly shows the appearance and events for your iPhone's current location, and you can quickly check any location in the world using the map view. Perfect for fishing or hunting trips, or astronomers and astrologers.

The calculations for events are accurate to a few minutes of the US Naval Observatory sun and moon calendars, and it doesn't rely on large astronomical data updates, nor on-line sites. In fact, it never accesses the Internet! This avoids any roaming charges from your operator. If you use the map function, you naturally need to have internet access.

Special Features:
- informative, at-a-glance views with crisp graphics
- reports if the Sun or the Moon never sets or rises at a location on a certain day
- accounts for Daylight Saving Time for use in any country and any date
- map view supports planning trips ahead to "on-the-hour" timezones sharing the phone location's Daylight Saving Time
- all algorithms have been updated to include the latest modifications, and verified against the US Naval Observatory and major astronomy sites.

AVIA Moonrise is quick, easy to use, and universal!

Okay but it has issues.

This app is okay, but it has issues. For instance, every month when the Moon is at 1st quartet, the rise and set times are not displayed.

Works great for me

I use this app to see how much moon I will have for NVG flight operations. It works perfect for my needs.

Nice looking, inaccurate. Off by one time zone.

Too bad Moonrise can't derive the correct time zone; I'm in NY (and its map's pin is correctly on my block) but it says I'm at UTC -4 (incl. Daylight Savings Time), but it should be UTC -5.

Compared to the other calculations it must do, this one seems trivial, yet it creates a gross error making it unusable.

The ads work great, though, so I gave it two stars.

Oh, I followed the link to support and it brought me to a page (with no contact info) that included the following:

The calculations for events are accurate to a few minutes of the US Naval Observatory
sun and moon calendars, and it doesn't rely on large astronomical data updates,
nor on-line sites. In fact, it never accesses the Internet!

So that may explain it. Nice that it doesn't need Internet access, but nicer would be if it were accurate.
