IIUC, the program under discussion tries to predict the exact time of sunrise and sunset in your current location? Just to amplify the importance of location (I'm sure most people on this list already know this), a time zone is about 1000 miles wide (east / west) at the equator and maybe up to even 50 degrees latitude (north or south), and that represents 60 minutes of time (and about 15 degrees of rotation of the earth). Thus, an inaccuracy of ~17 (16 2/3) miles in your east/west location means an inaccuracy of 1 minute in time.
