Calculations are based on the formulas as published in "Astronomical Algorithms"
by author Jean Meeus. The calculation results are accurate up to 1 minute for
locations between +/- 72 degrees latitude and accurate up to 10 minutes outside these latitudinal degrees.
Due to variations in the atmospheric composition, pressure or temperature, the observations can vary
from the calculations. Calculations are valid between the year 1901 and 2099.
For years between -2000 up to and including 1900 and from 2100 up to 3000 deviations up to 3 minutes are possible.
Daylight saving time is not integrated. If required, the user should adapt the time zone values.
