For thousands of years, people have observed, been fascinated by, and even worshipped the moon. Helping to bring the art of the almanack into the next millennium, Infra-Azure Labs (formerly Clysmic Software) presents Lunabar, the Digital Lunar Almanack.
The Lunabar application will put a lunar almanack in your taskbar. It accurately shows the current phase of the moon, the times of moonrise, moon southing, and moonset, and the zodiacal constellation and sign. The phase, constellation or zodiacal sign is shown in a tooltip window when your mouse hovers over the icon, and a full lunar almanack is just a click away.
There are many graphical features, such as selectable fonts and "themes." There is a full installation and uninstallation program and a help file.
Lunabar can display many full moon name ‘traditions.’ It can display moon phases in astronomical or astrological format, appealing to a wide range of users. There also are many popup features: moonlight hours window, position in constellation/sign.
Lunabar shows sunrise and sunset, the constellation and sign of the Sun, and the current Planetary Hour.
For international users, Lunabar uses your Windows system’s settings for time zone, daylight savings time, and time display format. Also there’s full support for southern hemisphere users.
