    I love the the script.. I can't seem to be able to get the sunset, sunrise times in the top headerto be correct.

    Living in California these times are highly unlikly.. it is currently about 11:30 AM

    Sunrise: 2:10 AM
    Sunset: 5:13 PM

    Date and Time is correct

    TB,
    Sunrise/SunSet times are based on your lat/long coordinates that are set by using View > Options > Sunrise/Sunset tab. You need to select a city near your location.

        And for anybody who has the location set correctly, the third parameter is your PC's timezone setting. Windows defaults to the left coast timezone, which is fine for Tim, but for those of us on the right coast, in between, or in another part of the world altogether, this has to be set for it to calculate things properly.

        The algorithm used should be VERY accurate. At its worst I think it can be as much as 10 minutes off, but that is at the north and south poles.
