Rising and setting times of the Sun and planets

by Dominic Ford

The shaded regions below indicate the times of day when each planet is above the horizon. Each planet is represented by a particular color, and the tick-boxes at the top can be used to select which planets are shown.

Click and drag the graph left or right to see rising and setting times into the future or past.

For the Sun, three lighter lines are shown after sunset and before sunrise. These indicate the progress of twilight, marking the times when the Sun is 6°, 12° and 18° below the horizon – the beginning and end of civil, nautical and astronomical twilight.
