Good afternoon,

I'm attempting to get the sunrise/sunset based off a latitude and longitude and date.   I have most of it working, but I'm using the DateTime.UtcNow to accomodate for daylight savings and such.  However, I found out that when I run DateTime.UtcNow it gives me the UTC for where the SERVER is at.  I need to be able to get the information for where the latitude/longitude are at, and also for the date I pass the function.

Has anybody done this before?

No classes or methods available to achieve this with in the .net BCL.

You have to use the external web services. There are some service providers who offer these time services.

Below are the links for some of them

I ended up having the user select their time zone manually when uploading the files, I tend to shy away from using external web services since if they go down or change it effects the whole application.

But since your answer is a possible solution and would have worked (not to mention the only response, thank you!) I'll mark yours as solution.

Thanks for the suggestion SriVaddadi
