Glossary

Altitude The angle, in degrees, between the horizon and the object. Since Calgary is north of the Tropic of Cancer, the maximum altitude of the sun or moon will always be above the south horizon.
Azimuth The angle, in degrees, measured clockwise from north to the point on the horizon where the object appears.
Transit The instant when the object passes over the observer's meridan. Since Calgary is north of the Tropic of Cancer, this will be the instant when the sun or moon is due south.
Twilight In the above listings, actually Civil Twilight. When the sun is within 6° of, but below, the horizon. During Civil Twilight, there is generally sufficient illumination to carry on outdoor activities.
Nautical Twilight (not shown above) is when the sun is within 12° of the horizon and means that outlines are generally visible.
Astronomical Twilight (not shown above) is when the sun is within 18° of the horizon and means that the sun is contributing to sky illumination.
