Great little link below, you can change month and year, by manually altering the hyperlink. Or clicking on their date option (just below their heading). You can also change countries. Boy, I could have used one of these at school when I was in that geography/physics class trying to figure out all those “bits and bobs and what ifs”.

Technical term : “refraction” Brisbane Sunrise 5:53AM Sunset 5:53PM 11hrs 59 minutes 43 seconds almost, not quite, 12 hours.
