php-solunar 005

is now available to download. php-solunar has been given its own project space here on sourceforge https://sourceforge.net/projects/phpsolunar/ you can download the latest release from there. The current download is nothing new, it is the same files I release over a year ago, but now maybe they will be a little easier to find.

solunar: third release

Calculate Solunar Tables for any position on earth. Solunar tables are used to predict the best days and times of day to go hunting and fishing.

The third "working prototype" has been released.

Previous releases have required the libnova libraries for the astronomical data. Now we are performing our own astronomical calculations.

This will be the final "working prototype" release. This release is intended for linux, however I have compiled the source on a windows machine without any problems.... read more

Second file release.

Calculate Solunar Tables for any position on earth. Solunar tables are used to predict the best days and times of day to go hunting and fishing.

The second release of a working prototype is now available for download. In this release I have added moon phase reporting and a daily action prediction scale.

The project is also in the planning stages for a windows version and a web version as well.

I have started coding...its going slow.

I have started on a prototype. The prototype will take a set of lat and lon coordinates and a date for input and output sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset. I am expecting an accuracy of one minute. It turns out astrological algorithms are more complicated then I originally envisioned, but not impossible.

Between work and family I will have about an hour or two every couple of days to work on the project, so it will be a few weeks before I expect to upload the prototype. If it is going to take any longer I will ask for help.
