Moonlet: Phase of the Moon Applet
by Akkana Peck
Edit the date in the text field to show the phase of the moon
at a different time.
Have a problem running this applet? Please see my
bug report page.
If you get a "Can't parse date" error, perhaps your
system timezone isn't set right;
may help. Or try editing the date field and typing in a date in a format like:
Dec 2 13:00 PST 1997 and see if that helps.
