What's new in this version (3.0.0):

Greatly improved efficiency of graphics handling
Account for timezone for Solstices and Equinoxes
Added Live Folder and Content Provider for upcoming alerts
Added auto refresh location option (press menu in map)


Calendars divide years into months of irregular length and even the length of a year changes during leap years!
AstroClock visualizes time according to three consistent natural cycles i.e. day, moon and season.
Time is indicated by three hands which each turn once for each cycle. (they still turn in a clockwise direction)

Bring your home screen to life with a gorgeous widget (resizable on newer phones and tablets) or a live wallpaper (very battery efficient as it ticks only once every 15 minutes). On older phones AstroClock provides a LiveFolder listing all upcoming alerts.
Display AstroClock on your wall mounted tablet or wrist watch in full screen mode to view the clock without your home screen in the way.

AstroClock has a variety of downloadable themes to match your mood and if there isn't one that suits your fancy you can design your own theme, share it with others and become moderately famous!
If you don't want any theme or clock to display at all you can simply enable any of the 12 alerts (4 for each cycle) and have them show up in your notification bar as desired.

AstroClock plays nicely with other apps: on each alert (whether enabled for notification or not) it broadcasts an intent to any app that wants to respond according to the astronomical time. Additionally, AstroClock offers a Content Provider that other apps can read to get the dates of all upcoming alerts.

This app is made by an independent developer during evenings and weekends. If you like it then please post a comment below :)

Simply beautiful!

Pretty app, though not entirely correct. Shows twilight instead of rise/set times. Also, mid-day/night calculations and season divisions not accurate.

I don't quite understand it and there are no instructions. The location can't be changed w/o reinstaling. However, it is beautiful.
