Hey guys,

found this website, it seems pretty cool, it tells you the sun position throughout the day. I found this useful for spotting, it basically helps you to understand where is the right place to be when spotting.

I've used it too and it's excellent. It looks complicated at first glance but you get the hang of it very easily.

It is an immensely helpful website. I use it before any trip to any airport to make sure I'm going to be in the best locations for the time I'm going to be there.
