Newspaper Sunrise Sunset Timings

All daily newspapers give astronomical sunrise timings. Which is the edge of the disk visible above eastern horizon. For astrological and muhurtham calculation this (daily newspaper/astronomical) sunrise cannot be used. For religious purposes and astrology when the middle of the sun's disk rises above eastern horizon timings are taken. For panchangam purposes astronomical (daily newspaper) sunrise and sunset has no use, and hence our website uses middle of the disk appears to rise above eastern horizon values for sunrise and sunset. Hence, they may differ from daily newspaper timings by a few minutes as it takes some time for sun's middle of the disk to rise above eastern horizon. We only give sunrise used for religious and astrological purpose which is used to determine exact Rahukalam, Yamagandam, Gulikai, Durmuhurtham, Abhijit Muhurtham, Chogadia / Gowri panchangam and various other timings. This is another big mistake people do is use newspaper sunrise and sunset. All festival determinations are done based on 'madhyabimb darshan' -- middle of the disk visible.

Timings mentioned in panchangam:
The english day is from midnight to midnight. Hence they reset the clock at midnight along with the date and the day. The indian day is from the sunrise to sunrise. Tithis, Nakshatra, Yoga, Karana can end at anytime during the day. Unlike english dates they do not really start at midnight and end at midnight. Their end times are denoted in panchangam. Now if Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga and Karana (Panchang Elements) ends before midnight their times will be normal time but in 24 hour format. If they end after midnight but before next sunrise then their time will be more than 24. Which means if they end at after 1:00 AM panchangam shows 25:00, 2:00 AM will show 26:00, 3:00 AM will show 27:00, 4:00 AM will show 28:00, 5:00 AM will show 29:00, 6:00 AM will show 30:00, 7:00 AM will show 31:00. After the sunrise panchangam time will show normal clock timings. for example: on August 2nd Tithi tritiya ends at 26:23:02 it means it ends on August 3rd at 2:23:02 AM. The day still remains same as we mention indian day not english day. This is the standard panchangam convention. Once you know this you can read any printed or online panchangam. However certain online panchangam use only 24 hour format but it's a non-standard way of representing, and it makes difficult to know the rising Tithi, Nakshatra at sunrise. The convention used on this site is the standard convention and it makes easy know the Tithi and the Nakshatra at the sunrise.

All Tithi(T:), Nakshatra(N:), Yoga(Y:), and Karana(K:) timings denotes end timings. Sun's (SN:), Moon(MN:)'s timings are timing when they enter the new sign and they are in english 24 hour format.

Uttarayana / Dakshinayana

As per DrkSiddhanta:
Dakshinayana starts when sayana sun enters cancers, and uttaraayana starts when sayana surya enters Capricorn. We need to use sayana surya in order to observe surya's ayana gati.

  1. Dakshinayana starts at June 22st, 2010 (GMT)
  2. Uttarayana starts at December 22nd, 2010 (GMT)

Note:Some people follow when nirayana sun enters makara for uttarayana and karka for dakshinayana. However due to ayanamsha the equinoxes are sliding. The distance between sayana sun and nirayana sun also increases. Uttarayana and Dakshinayana occurs with direct reference to sun. To measure this a reference to some distant star is not required. Ayana gati means Sun's apparent vertical movement with reference to earth and hence it's a direct relationship with earth. This movement is not dependent on nirayana sun position -- longitudes. This vertical movement is in terms of latitudes. That's why it's incorrect to say when the sun enters makara rashi (longitudes) it's uttarayana.

When the Sun reaches it's highest northern latitude dakshinaya begins as it's starts decending. Same goes for Uttarayana -- When sun reaches is lowest southern latitude its starts to go up and hence uttarayana. Ritu -- Seasons they donot follow ayanamsha. Ayanamsha is continuously increasing. Right now it's 24 degrees. Hence once upon a time makara samkranti was around december 21/22nd (When ayanamsha was zero). Currently it's Jan 14/15th. It will slide further as Ayanamsha increases. Sun's Ayana gati is always tropical. Ritus always follow tropical sun, not nirayana sun. However, some people will always make their panchangam using nirayana sun which is completely wrong. Most modern panchangam will follow method positions of tropical sun to determine Uttarayana, Dakshinayana. One can also refer to Govt. Of India's Rastriya Panchanga, and Various modern accurate panchanga like Date Panchanga, Janmabhumi Panchanga, etc..

Khagol -- Astronomy, Bhugol -- Geography, Ganita -- Math, and Phalita -- prediction are important pillars of Astrology. It's sad we are ignoring the siddhanta part and blindly ignore our rich dharmashastras and vedic traditions.
