Sun Surveyor takes the mystery out of the sunrise, sunset, and moon phases, allowing photographers and filmmakers to scout the best locations, plan effectively, and get the perfect shot.

The Live Camera View, Interactive Map (with Street View), 3D Compass, and detailed Ephemeris provide a wealth of information about the largest natural light source in the galaxy, as well as the moon, and milky way:

- View augmented reality projections of the sun and moon paths, pinpoint the time the sun or moon will be at a particular location in the sky
- Predict and plan for the golden hour, blue hour and every sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset
- Prepare night photography shots with the Milky Way & star trail features

Solar Industry (PV) Professionals, architects, real estate agents, and gardeners will also find a wealth of empowering interactive features:

- Show clients the quality and quantity of seasonal sunlight at a given location
- Understand potential shade of surroundings and discover any obstructions
- Create images of the summer and winter Solstice & Equinox paths for a site

Additional features:

- Photo Opportunities (new!) - an interactive listing of critical times to help inspire and generate shot ideas; including the full moon looming low in the sky during magic hour, total darkness for stargazing, and more
- Position Search (new!) - an extremely powerful tool to search for sun, moon and milky way center positions within various constraints, for the perfectionist planner
- Visual time machine - take a quick glance at the light for a day, or dial in desired compositions easily
- Moon distance, age, apogee, perigee, super moon predictions
- Sun shadow information - calculate the length of shadows cast by objects
- Share details and locations with clients and colleagues
- Offline usage (excludes Map View, Street View) - enter coordinates, save & load locations with no data connection or GPS available
- Measure distance, and difference between elevations, and vertical angle differentials with the Map view
- Import and export Google Earth .kmz/.kml locations
- Magnetic declination compensation
- Widgets - 9 varieties of sun and moon widgets for your homescreen

** NOTE: the Live View and 3D Compass portions of this app make use of your device's compass. Some devices may not have a compass.

    Excellent app. Very useful, especially when needing to get a quick idea of how the sun's movements (particularly the solstices) will affect the layout of a new house.

    I bought this app years ago to determine solar alignments for an archaeologist. It worked great. I now use it years to later determine the placement of sunscreens around my house. It's a great app. I highly recommend it. Oh, I forgot to mention if your a science geek this app is great

    Hasn't received updates for a year. But it's a complete and useful app for either technical (i.e. solar energy) and artistic purposes.

    Total Great app!! Have been using this for a few years now. Knowing where the sun sets and rises has been great for taking pictures or just enjoying watching. Love this app!

    This is the best Sun Path app out there for the Android platform. I'm a location scout for film and TV and this works like a charm. My only complaint is that Street View doesn't allow a snapshot to be taken like you can in Live View. I use Street View about as much as I use Live View and the only way I can grab that shot is through a screen grab, which isn't very efficient. Also, if Sun Surveyor could take advantage of a camera's wide angle lens (I have a Samsung S20 Ultra), this app would be even more valuable to me.

    This is an unbelievable beautiful bit of software engineering, except for the camera action bug. It has a live view, where one can screenshot both the overlay of the graphics, and the view through the camera lens. But be warned... the camera sound will let rip with a massive click that sounds like the earth has opened, regardless of any volume settings you may have set on your device. There is no adjusting it, no overrides, no control. Brace yourself.

    Very helpful for planning timelapse sequences for upcoming sunrises & sunsets. I liked it on my Nexus 6P, but needed to calibrate the compass fairly regularly. This was true for other apps that use a compass setting, and quite easy to do via the "Calibrate the compass" setting in Google Maps.The sensors in my new Pixel 4XL are much better at keeping the compass accurate. The app's "future view" slider really helps when using the Pixel's new astrophotography feature. I use it to set up my tripod and align everything for capturing a suitable foreground during the day, then just go out to attach the camera and get the shot at the predicted time. (Much appreciated when it is -25C!)

    I like it for landscape photos. I would have given 5 stars, but one of my favourite features was the ability to write notes of an area so you could read these if wanting to return, the map reference was saved to so click it & your note & reference were there. However, all the references & notes I took have disappeared. No idea how that happened & gutted that it has. If anyone can explain this I'd love to hear from you.

    This has been my "go to" tool for planning milky way photography for several years. The tutorial videos are very helpful. I can plan a photo shoot from the comfort of my home or when on location during the day. It has more useful and easily understood features than any other app I have seen.

    I have several solar geometry apps I use as I work in the solar education industry and this app is the best of them all by a long margin. a key feature this has that most do not is true north setting vs magnetic north. you can also calibrate against the actual sun position. its AR camera interaction is the most useful and informative. it has all the features required for a solar access assessment and also has many fun aspects like moon and milky way positions. all in all, the best of the lot.
