SunCalc – sun position, sunlight phases, sunrise, sunset, dusk and dawn times calculator.

SunCalc is a little app that shows sun movement and sunlight phases during the given day at the given location. You can see sun positions at sunrise, specified time, and sunset allowing you to more efficiently schedule exterior photography. The app run off Google Maps and the satellite view will let you see how surrounding buildings or features may affect your site at a given time.

The thin orange curve is the current sun trajectory, and the yellow area around is the variation of sun trajectories during the year. The closer a point is to the center, the higher is the sun above the horizon. The colors on the time slider above show sunlight coverage during the day.  You are able to move the pin point around to see how the sun will affect different areas or angles of the project site.
