Tonight's sky sunrise & sunset
Posted by katsaylor on Monday, November 07, 2011 4:36 PM

Sunrise & sunset times are 1 hr ahead for Alabama, Mississippi, New Orleans.

For Alabama your database shows Eastern time, but all are in Central time.

Same problem for Mississippi and New Orleans

Should show GMT-6 not GMT-5

For October 17 2013, the times for Denver sunrise and sunset are also off by an hour.  I am suspicious the calculations are not considering MST and MDT offsets.

This has always been an issue with Sky Dome.  I just save my location and correct time zone as a custom and set it as my default.  But keep the data handy because Sky Dome doesn't always remember custom settings over time.
