The information most needed is usually one or a combination of the following: 1. rise and set times of the Sun and Moon, 2. beginning and ending times of twilight, 3. total number of daylight hours, 4. maximum height of the Sun or Moon above the horizon with corresponding time of occurrence, 5. at specific instants, the angular distance of the Sun or Moon from the horizon and from a cardinal direction, 6. the amount of natural light at a designated time of day or night., These data not only may differ from day to day (continuously in the case of 5. and 6.), but also differ appreciably as experienced at one place on the Earth as opposed to another, even at the same instant. Despite the calculational complexities mplied, it is possible not only to satisfy the needs for all such data in a straightforward way, but also to piace appropriate tools for producing the data directly into the hands of those who need it. This publication is intended for a large number of people who have requirements for the type of data listed, but whose education has placed no special emphasis on astronomy. In what follows there are the means for calculating the needed information either by one of the self-contained computer routin
