The Naval Oceanography Portal website, created by the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, is an excellent source for obtaining accurate charts that track sunrise/sunset times for your area. Just type your city or town and select your state from a pulldown and select 'Compute Table' and you can see a chart from the U.S. Naval Observatory that includes the sunset/sunrise times for the entire year. The site also includes the options to do similar searches for moonrise/moonset, civil twilight, nautical twilight and astronomical twilight. You can print the tables or import them into spreadsheets. The site also includes a wealth of meteorogical data.
