Sunset times

This web app was inspired by the question of why daylight saving time exists. This led to the question of how does daylight changes with location, and the answer to that is this app which is live at sunset-times.appspot.com.

The app was built with Google App Engine, and uses the Google Maps API to find the locations, and crepyscule to calculate sunset/surise times based on the position of the earth throught the year.

The plot was created with D3.js and the colors for sunset and sunrise times were selected as the average colors from a trusted google image search (who knew they were different?).
