Want to see the phases of this month's moon, or find out when to catch the sunrise on your vacation to Tahiti? Then check out the GeoAstro Applet Collection, a set of sun-moon Java calculators created by a German high school teacher and hobby programmer. The applets can show you day and night on a world map, tell you what a tree's shadow should be like at any time, compute the phases of the moon, predict equinoxes and solstices, and more. Lots of links lead to related info on other sites.
