In Investigation 2.1, Measuring Temperature and Daylight, and Investigation 2.4, Observing the Moon, students access the US Naval Observatory (USNO) site to obtain daylight or darkness data over the course of a year. It is also used in Investigation 4.2, Daylight through the Year, to obtain the amount of daylight for each day for a given year. USNO is updating their site and many parts are currently unavailable, including this page. Please refer to these alternate sites to help find the data for this part of the investigation.
