The Daily View screen shows where the Moon and Sun will be during the day, overlaid on a blue band that shows morning and evening twilight and the hours of daylight. In addition, the height of the Moon and Sun on the day in question are also shown. For photographers, this information will show the best times during the day to find the quality of light for photography. For fishermen, it will show the best times for night-time fishing when the moon is high and bright, for instance; for gardeners, it will show when to sow by moonlight; for military, it will allow planning of night-time exercises or sorties, around new moon when the night sky is at its darkest; for amateur astronomers, it will show when to do your observing – when the moon is near new or predominantly in the daytime sky (if you prefer observing deep-sky objects); or when it’s high in the night-time sky if you enjoy obseving the moon itself.
