While traveling and crossing time zones, I kept wanting to get a picture of what time of day it was at home compared to where I was. I knew the basics of the rotation and orbit of the earth, but I wanted to see a map of what was happening.
Next steps include allowing the user to click on the map to reset the geolocated point and recalculate sunrise and sunset times.
Please allow your browser to geolocate you. The orange dots represent your location on the maps, as well as your current time and date on the graph.
Click and drag the grey circle in the graph to change the time and date. Below the graph are two play buttons which advance the time through minutes or days.
Click and drag the globe on the left to rotate it.
