2019-08 August Sunrise & Sunset

Call sheets often list First Light/Dawn, Sunrise, Sunset and Dusk/Last Light times.

Best practice is to calculate them for your shooting location. I’ve provided Sydney for August 2019 below.

SYDNEY Lat=-33°52’00” Long=+151°12’00”
TIMES OF SUNRISE AND SUNSET (for ideal horizon & meteorological conditions)

AT = Astronomic Twilight = Centre mass of Sun is 18° below the horizon. Light pollution prevents astronomy.
NT= Nautical Twilight = Centre mass of Sun is 12° below the horizon. Horizon can normally be distinguished.
CT= Civil Twilight = Centre mass of Sun is 6° below the horizon. Normally enough light to see without artificial light.
Transit = Time when Sun is highest in the sky.

Planning ahead? Here is 2019:

Update: While I work out how to make this easily available, here’s a CSV file of Sydney Dawn, Sunrise, Transit, Sunset & Dusk time data for 2019. That’s all of 2019 and a bonus for January 2020.
