The Fourth Day... for your iPhone or iPod
The Fourth Day is an astronomical clock
and almanac for your iPhone or iPod Touch. Customized
for your location using location services, or user
entered latitude and longitude, The Fourth Day displays
data about the daily, monthly, and yearly astronomical
events related to time keeping.
The Fourth Day goes beyond sunrise and set, and moon
phases. It also displays the start and ending times of
civil, nautical, and astronomical twilights and lunar
and solar transits. Lunar and solar perigee and apogee
dates and distances, the dates and times of equinoxes
and solstices, and the longest and shortest day of the
year for your geographic location. Distance values can
be displayed in miles or kilometers. In addition all
calculations are done on the device and no Internet
connection is required.
The main clock screen displays an animated 3D view of
the earth with the correct sunlight illumination angle,
and any of the following time values: Local Civil (12 or
24 hour mode), Greenwich, Local Sidereal (corrected for
longitude), and Julian Day.
The Fourth Day is useful for any astronomy enthusiast or
anyone needing to plan outdoor activities around
daylight hours. Take it on your next camping or fishing
trip, use it to plan sporting events or outdoor
photography sessions before twilight ends or at
morning’s first light.
