The time of day and or date will independently flash green whenever there is a data update with the new time and date of the latest updated values.You can always see where the sun and moon are located in the world in 'degrees' by referring to "Sun El" & "Moon EL" (EL refers to elevation) data as it relates to our local position in the world.The number is positive when the sun or moon is up in our local sky, and negative when they are tracking below the horizon.In this way you can always see the location of the sun and moon in the world as it relates to our local Placerville, CA.
