UPDATE Now also shows when there's a solar eclipse and where they're visible.

The app gives iPad and iPhone users the ability to view the current position of the sun and moon in a high definition world map.

“Great for watching the moon and
the sun rising in the different continents.
Really cool app.”

Comment from EricrA, July 2012

The animated map fast forwards or rewinds time at different speeds so you can watch the daylight and night move across the planet. You can also select a specific date and time or preset season.

timeanddate.com’s Day and Night World Map is now available in High Definition on the Apple iPad.
