Altitude and Azimuth of the Moon for given Time and Location


This application gives the horizon coordinates (Altitude (Hc) and Azimuth (Az)) of the Moon for a given time and location. It will also calculate the apparent Altitude (Hs) as will be observed through a sextant measurement.

NOTICE: Ephemerides are available for 2020 and 2021.
