Welcome to SunTrajectory.net!
This app will enable you to visualize where the sun and the moon will run their courses while watching through your phone.
You can now plan:
Where and when the sun will rise or set.
When it will be hidden by a building or a relief.
When it will be seen according to a specific axis/angle.
+Same thing for the moon!
* If, for example, you're visiting a house you wish to buy, take a lot of pictures with the application.
You will then be able to visualize the sunshine at different moments of the year!
Shoot the inside from a window, and activate the drawing of the shadow.
You will then visualize what the window will light at a given date!
* Activate the water mode.
You can now tell where the sun or the moon will be...
...if reflected in water!
Drag or tap to change the date and thus pre-visualize the sun or moon trajectory in the weeks or months to come.
Drag or tap to change the time and make the sun run along its path on the selected day.
Sunrise and sunset times for the selected day are also displayed.
You can also set a particular date using the calendar.
Use the "now" button to get back quickly to the present date and time settings.
* The blue arrows represent the summer and winter solstices. The sun path will always be -all year long- between those two.
This way, you can immediately see that the sun on this picture will never be lower than the blue arrows.
This is also relevant for the drawing of the shadow.
Use the moon phases calendar:
Learn at a glance on which days the moon will be full (or conversely when the night will be moonless).
The upper-left drawing shows precisely which phase of the moon you will see on the chosen date.
For more details, please visit MoonTrajectory.net.
Choose between displaying the sun, its shadow, or the moon.
The drawing of the shadow can help you predict where your own shadow will be.
If you are at the top of a building or a mountain, you will then be able to predict its shadow!
