The All Day Above/Below Horizon Control

Scroll Prev Up Next More
For locations above 66 degrees north (and below 66 degrees south), there are recurring periods, covering many days, when the Moon never sets below, or never rises above, the horizon, and similarly, there are extended periods, covering weeks or months, during which  the Sun never sets below, or never rises above, the horizon.

 

The case of the Moon is handled by the use of Moon Times options and the corresponding Moon above/below the horizon token.

The case of the Sun is handled by the use of Daylight options and the corresponding Sun above/below the horizon token.

 

Show Token When

 

Use the Show Token When setting to determine when the indications that there is no rise nor setting should appear. The possible values are:

 

Always

On the first day

On the last day

On both the first and last day

On any day without rise/set

 

All Day Above/Below

 

Text/Symbols

The text to display as replacement for the [mab] token or [sab] token on days when there is no rise/set. The font used can be set independently for cases when the celestial object does not rise/set because it is below the horizon or because it is above the horizon.

Change Font

Determines if the text used to replace the [mab] token or the [sab] token uses a specific font (specified below) or if it should just be plain text displayed in the font of the original token.

Font Name

The font to use to display the text above. This text can also be set independently for cases when the celestial object does not rise/set because it is below the horizon or because it is above the horizon.
