Calculation Time Suffixes

Scroll Prev Up Next More

By default, astronomical tokens that are based on the phase angle of the Earth with the Sun (such as Zodiac sings or the seasons) or the phase angle of the Moon with the Earth (such as Moon phases), are calculated at the end of the day (23:59:59.9999), which is the standard.

 

To perform these calculations at other, non-standard times, use the suffixes below.

 

:@0000

Performs the astronomical calculation at the beginning of the day.

:@1200

Performs the astronomical calculation at noon.

:@2359

 

optional

Performs the astronomical calculation at the end of the day.

 

This is the default setting, when none is specified, and therefore does not need to be used. It can, however, be useful to clearly state the intended time of calculation, to avoid any ambiguity is someone else ever takes over your template and script.

 

Note that the time of calculation of Moon/Lunar Day tokens is based on the Lunar Days (Tithis) settings of the the Moon and Sun Options dialog, rather than the modifiers above.
