Here's a website for help in planning trips if knowing sun and moon phases and locations is important to you.

Plenty of links on the side bar there.



Here's another, which is more like what I wanted to be able to calculate where the sun's arc is thru the spring/summer/fall so I can maximize the angle in setting solar panels.

What I WAS looking for when I started this Pat, was a map of North America that showed the path it takes over us. All I've seemed to find, is technical data about where it will be, but not a graphical representation of it. Know of any?

No, I don't. But that would be a good thing to know when we're on site, as well as what quadrant we can expect to see the moon come up in.
