Moon and Sun in 2016 around Seattle

January 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The moon and sun trajectories can be mainly given by the application called TPE. I have plenty of past shooting images and data. By combining both of these can create a good database for the future shooting. This Photo Note attempts to summarize what I've captured in the past and what and when the moon/sun shooting would be good in 2016 around Seattle area. Please note that the time and angle shown are not image capture time but moon/sun rising/setting time and associated azimuth angle.
