I just downloaded this, it looks like it could be quite useful, it's basically a Google maps overlay that lets you see sun and moon angles. There's also a (non free) iphone version.

cool, thanks!

I wish there was something like that which would take topo information into account for where I live. There's a whole big difference between 'moonrise' and the moon making it over a 2000' ridge.

I believe you can do that with this, but it's not a simple process from the look of it: http://stephentrainor.com/2009/08/11/using-tpe-part-3-geodesy
