Planetary Hours (Hora) calculations



It's all in the Timing!

Note: There are two screens for each date. The first screen shows "Day-hora" (planetary hours between sun-rise and sun-set) and the second screen shows "Night-hora" (planetary hours between sun-set and next day's sun-rise). The above sample screen is showing "Day-horas" only.



Highest degree of precision in planetary-hours ("Hora") timings:

Vjyotish-exl provides you highest degree of precision in planetary-hour timings. The planetary-hours are calculated exactly for the desired geo-graphical coordinates, using precise Sun-rise and Sun-set timings of concerned location itself. Remember, planetary-hours calculations are primarily based on correct determination of Sun rise and Sun set timings.

Sun-rise and Sun-set calculations as suggested in our ancient Vedic scriptures:

The Sun-rise and Sun-set timings are calculated for the “Middle of Sun-disk”, as suggested in our ancient Vedic scriptures. Many almanacs ('Panchangas') and astrology softwares are found using Sun-rise and Sun-set timings for the “Edge of Sun-disk”, which is basically wrong and error in shown timings for planetary-hours may be up to several minutes.

Provision for “Day Light Saving Time” (DST) adjustments:

In some regions of the globe, watches are moved ahead by one hour during summer months. It is called 'Day-Light Saving Time'. The DST gets adjusted in all shown timings (like, Sunrise, Sunset, Muhurta start and end timings) of the concerned date.

In-built global geographical coordinate database (atlas):

Program comes with huge in-built geographical coordinate database, consisting of almost all Indian and US cities and towns. Besides that, at least, capital city of every country on this globe is included in the atlas.

Facility to enter the geographical coordinates manually:

Program offers facility to enter and save the geographical coordinates of concerned place manually also.

Automatic adjustment of all timings according to the “Standard Time zone”:

Program picks up “Standard Time zone” (the difference from Greenwich Mean Time) and geographical coordinate of specified location automatically. All shown timings are adjusted accordingly. You have the facility to alter the time-zone values manually also, if needed.

You need not to enter your location every time:

Your previous choice of location (and geographical coordinates) is automatically saved as “Default location” for the next run. You need not to enter your location every time.
