# Formula for getting time of sunrise at a particular location?

I'm far away from my refs at the moment, but I believe either an ephemeris from the USNO or any of Meeus's astronomical methods books should have the appropriate formulae. –  J. M. Nov 1 '10 at 15:04
This is an old question but I figured it is better placed on astronomy.SE. –  Zev Chonoles Oct 21 '11 at 15:13
