Solstice Azimuth (Solar Stanstills)

 

The applet is calculating the azimuth angle of the sun for sunrise and sunset at summer solstice and winter solstice, using the formula:

cos(az) = sin(eps)/cos(latitude )

The value of the obliquity of the ecliptic for 2000, Jan 1 at 12 UT (Julian Day 2451545.0) is:

ε = 23.43929° = 23° 26' 21.448''

Obliquity Applet

At present, the mean obliquity currently decreases by 0.014° (50.3'') per century.
Near the year 12030 a minimum will be reached (22° 36' 41 '').
About the year -7530 there was a maximum inclination (24° 14' 07 '').
