Hi
Total hours between total darkness to total daylight are over 24 hours in sun moon & space block.
Should it be 24 hours total.

Probably not quite exactly 24 hrs; but I do notice that the "total darkness" figures in the main Sun block are very different to those in the "Moon info" popup? (At the beta test sites and in production version here.)

This difference seemed to be an error. I will check when I am back home.

The total can only 24:00 hours when it is 24 hours dark or 24 hours daylight.  Otherwise the darkness periode starts in one day and ends in another.

I question whether you really need the hours of darkness. If you show the length of day(light) the darkness is implied.

Only approximately unless, as Wim says, you have 24 hours' day or night.

Are we confusing sunrise/sunset with civil, nautical or astronomical dawn/dusk somewhere? Original Sun block or pop-up showed times of civil dawn/dusk (elevation -6) as well as sunrise/set, I think.

What's our definition of daylight/darkness?

Agreed, but what value does "hours of darkness" have?

None at all. . . except to enable the pretty graphic.  :)

Cloud cover in Gelderland beta Current Conditions is always in Dutch, whatever the selected language.

The Current Conditions block uses the 1 hour forecast from DarkSky.
That forecast is not reloaded in every language.
I will check when I have normal access again.

I see what you mean: it happens here in production, too. If I select Dutch the DS cloud cover line remains in English.

Sorry.

Beta is working great for me.  One issue I have.  Time is displayed in 24hr format despite being set for 12hr format.



Thanks for the great work Wim.

That is a good catch! Never considered that one.
But it is a bit more difficult one to solve at once.  Needs some testing. And probably there should be a comma between  the day and year also?

Need to postpone to the next beta and will be included officially in the July release.

Didn't need a comma in the previous version. . . why the change?
