Sun and Moon Information

I've updated the sun and moon information Web page for the tmes and azimuth of the sunrise and sunset and moonrise and moonset for July through December 2009. In additon to the sun/moon tool I mentioned in a previous post here, you should have enough information to plan or recover the information.

A word of caution with this information, and really any sun and moon information about Mt. Rainier NP, it's doesn't and can't account for the local terrain in the NP. Simply put it's different depending on where you are, and only relatively accurate when you're above treeline with a clear east or west view, especially with the Mt. Rainier itself. This means in the lowland forests and river valleys, you'll have to adjust for the terrain, a later sunrise and moonrise and an earlier sunset and moonset.

That's it for this post, just an addition of new information for the rest of 2009. And as always, please let me know if you have problems or corrections with these Web pages or the information therein.
