I usually like to fly at dusk, so setting dusk set the time to 1800 hours in this instance. I Moved to a different month/season and the time for the same part of the day does not change i.e. 1800 hours, but dusk, although selected is not dusk.

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the post - I've verified the behavior you described. It is a bug, and we'll be entering it into our issue tracking system to resolve as quickly as possible. The main issue looks to be that the Time fields are not being updated correctly based on the changing seasonal day/night cycles. As a temporary work-around, you can select the Time of Day to at least get you close to the desired time, and fine-tune the hours/minutes from there. For example, in Norfolk, VA - roughly 20:00 works for Dusk in the Summer and 16:30 works for Dusk in the Winter.
