AltitudeMethod

AltitudeMethod

is an option for SunPosition, MoonPosition, and related functions that determines whether to take atmospheric refraction into account when computing altitude.

Details

  • Typical settings for AltitudeMethod include:
  • "TrueAltitude"assume no atmospheric refraction for altitude computations
    "ApparentAltitude"take atmospheric refraction into account for altitude computations
  • The typical default setting for AltitudeMethod is "TrueAltitude".

Examples
