Day to night

For sometime now I’ve noticed that WD does not switch the main screen or summary icon, if so selected, to night time until exactly one hour after sundown. Windows time zone is correctly set and lat/long setup is correctly showing the right sunset time.

Is this supposed to have a one hour lag? Not a big problem (have others) if it’s not.

Using 9.73c but it’s been around for awhile.

It may have something to do with “Twilight”, Nautical or Astronomical. :?
Maybe Brian will tell us.

More than you wanted to know.

SUNRISE
The time at which the first part of the sun appears above the horizon in the morning.

SUNSET
The time at this the last part of the sun disappears below the horizon in the evening.

DAWN OR CIVIL DAWN
This is the time at which the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the morning. Civil dawn is defined as that time at which there is enough light for objects to be distiguishable and that outdoor activities can commence.

NAUTICAL DAWN
This is the time at which the sun is 12 degrees below the horizon in the morning. Nautical dawn is defined as that time at which there is just enough sunlight for objects to be distiguishable.

ASTRONOMICAL DAWN
This is the time at which the sun is 18 degrees below the horizon in the morning. Astronomical dawn is that point in time at which the sun starts lightening the sky. Prior to this time, the sky is completely dark

DUSK OR CIVIL DUSK
This is the time at which the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the evening. At this time objects are distinguishable but there is no longer enough light to perform any outdoor activities.

NAUTICAL DUSK
This is the time at which the sun is 12 degrees below the horizon in the evening. At this time, objects are no longer distinguishable.

ASTRONOMICAL DUSK
This is the time at which the sun is 18 degrees below the horizon in the evening. At this time the sun no longer illuminates the sky.

TWILIGHT
The average time of civil twilight which is the time between civil dawn and sunrise and sunset and civil dusk.

Yikes…I thought it was when the sun went down! :smiley:

its so that the web cam for the day gets the twilight, etc
butyou should be seeing the sun set icon in between,…
yes?

the 1 hour is not a hold fast, it might be only 30 minutes at times, depends on where the cut off falls …(i think)

Ahhh, that’s what it is. The sunset icon is on the webpage but the main screen icon still shows partly cloudy daytime. Not a big deal.
