Reader Paul B. mentioned The Photographer’s Ephemeris. Paul’s description: “This is a free application that, although designed for photographers, would seem to have many uses for people hunting, fishing, or otherwise engaged in outdoor activities, [including the tactical variety.] Basically, you put in the date and your location and it pops up a google map showing you the direction of sunrise/sunset/moonrise/moonset, time for twilight (civil, nautical, astronomical). Also does some other things like compute distance and bearing, shadow length. It might be also useful for people doing considering a property purchase who are interested in how the sun will rise and set on the property, et cetera.

“Ski” Jim mentioned another notable home invasion robbery, in Colorado. Don’t become complacent, thinking that this only happens in big cities on the coasts.
