Im impressed with TV3s weather graphics, especially the Sunrise/Sunset boundary as it moves over NZ

Anyone know a place on the Net, where I can download or view something similiar?

Thanks............John in Mosgiel

I use this, not really what you want and you will have to set up your locality.

I guess you're looking for an animated version of the results from this (http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/earthview.html) page, shown here (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/earthview1_453902113.jpg) . I used to have a bookmark for a great one, but long since lost. Try a Google for "sun's path".

Have a look at this (http://www.mapmaker.com/shadowfacts/sunclock6.asp) - it's an application and a screensaver (free, or you have the option to upgrade). Shows times around the world as well a sun position, moon position and sunrise sunset boundary (in real time)...

I used to have a DOS programme which did that. I think it was called "Geoclock".

Even though old, and only 16 colours, 800x600 VGA, it is still a good program, and runs OK in XP:

This screen grab was taken at 5.04pm and shows NZ just getting into darkness.

It can probably still be downloaded from Simtel or Garbo.

The unregistered version is a bit limited in maps, but quite adequate.

Thanks all.

Geoclock it is.

After posting I "re-discovered" the Geoclock page, the windows version is compatible with all windows up to XP, apparently.

Or you could get a nice PDA: a Psion. ;) I seem to remember that they have a clock page like that. There's almost certainly one for the Palms, too.
