Sun and Moon Rise and Set Times for Fairbanks

The sun and moon rise and set times for each day of the year are depicted graphically. Colored bars indicate the sun-up and moon-up period for each day. The original data tables were obtained from URL http://riemann.usno.navy.mil/AA/data/docs/RS_OneYear.html and are presented here in graphical form. The numbers give the local time (AST) of rise and set times in hours and minutes. The plots show the moon-up in white, the sun-up in yellow, and the nautical twilight (12 degrees depression angle) in red. Only the time given by the black part of graphs is useful for auroral observations.
