What's this?

I grew up in Budapest and moved to the Netherlands a few years ago. I could not ignore the fact that the Sun has very different patterns: it rises later and sets later here than in Budapest.

I saw the inverse in the summer: Dutch summer evenings are much longer, but dawn does not lag behind that much.

This page lets you compare the dawn/dusk pattern of two arbitrary locations: just click the map to move a marker to your desired location. Hover over the graph to see exact dawn/dusk times.

I used quite a few tools to get this site going:
