    Purpose of use
    I am studying Chaco Indian culture and their use of astronomy. They based construction project on lunar position and knew of the moon's 18.5 year cycle.
    This calculator is perfect for my needs. I first visited your solar elevation calculator.

    Purpose of use
    I run and adventure race, and often at night. I wanted to know when the moon might be useful for night navigation on days I plan to race. Also thinking of building a "cheat sheet" of azimuth vs. time to help with direction finding on those days.

    Purpose of use
    To calculate the accuracy of the the correlation of earthquakes to lunar positions.
    It would be great if you included a moon nadir and a negative moon elevation to the existing calculator with the three moon positions so that we can see moon nadir, moon zenith, moonrise and moonset all at once. offer that option but do not offer an option to find the moon's 4 times and altitudes in the middle of the ocean using latitude and longitude only.

    Purpose of use
    I wanted to find out how moon rise is calculated jut to find out whether moon will be visibile on the sky at Cochin on 2 nd of August to ensure that Idul Fitre falls on 11.8.19 at kochi so tyhat a training schedule ( from 12.8.19 to 14.8.19) is not disrupted .
