Moon phase simulation, local times, and directions
The Moon icon at the top shows approximately what the current Moon phase looks like from the selected location. The white part is the illuminated part, while the gray part is not currently visible. It changes in real-time. The percentage below the Moon image indicates how much of the visible lunar surface is currently illuminated by the Sun.
On a larger screen, such as a desktop, you will find the local time for sunrise, sunset, moonrise, and moonset to the right of the Moon phase illustration near the top of the page, along with the direction in which they occur. On a smaller device, such as a mobile, this information is directly below the illustration.
The angles shown are azimuth angles. They are measured in degrees, with 360 degrees in a full circle, counted in a clockwise direction from north. North has an azimuth value of 0 degrees, east is 90 degrees, south is 180 degrees, and west is 270 degrees.
On a larger device, there is also a map where the location is marked with a “pin”. This map is not shown on a mobile or other small screen devices.
