Question:
What are the times of day the Moon will rise and set daily in February?



Replies:
The times depend on your latitude and longitude. My recommendation is for you to get the "World Almanac and Book of Facts," a paperback published by Funk and Wagnall's, widely available (I bought mine at the grocery store, it has all sorts of interesting information, well worth the $8.95 cover price, but try your local library if you do not want to buy it). It gives the February rise and set times of the Moon for several different latitudes (it gives these times in Greenwich Mean Time, but there are directions for converting them to local time, as well as for correcting for your particular latitude and longitude).
