Moonphase displays the current moon phase of current day as an icon in the Activity field. You can change time zone, latitude and longitude (you can also click on the map!

) to get a more accurate moon distance, moon rise, moon transit and moon set times and also the sun rise, sun transit and sun set. A little bonus: If you like to fish, mark the 'Show good fish days' option (fishing calendar, derived from 'the anglers Almanac').

"Great freeware program"

I am an amateur astronomer, so moon phases are important to me. I also love taking sunrise and/or sunset photos. Moonphase 3.3 helps me plan both types of sessions. Using ($$$#1#$$$), I always know when the nights are dark, for deep space viewing, and ($$$#0#$$$) and sunset times for any date are a bonus. This is a program well worth downloading and installing.

Pros
  • Allows you to run the program minimized, so you can always see the current moon phase on your Windows Toolbar. It also shows which days in any month are considered good days to go fishing! This data may be based on word-of-mouth fishing lore, but it's fun, anyway, and worth a try.
Cons
  • No serious cons come to mind, except that it might be TOO easy to accidentally click on the map, and change your LAT/LONG position without realizing that you'd done so.
