Sunrise! Every place can't be like Jackson Hole Wyoming where every sunrise is a photo op.

I wish the map were zoomable so I could get a better view of my area.

Pretty cool. I'll have to keep checking this and see how accurate it is.

What I don't understand is all the maps are identical. So if I chose "Sunset forecast for regions ONLY IN EST" it shows the entire USA and the same color patters as the ones for the other time zones.

I do see now that sunrise is also shown, you just have to scroll down.

Those are just screenshots. Click on 'Sunset Model' on the toolbar.

Chiming into an old thread, I've been checking their forecast for the past few months, and at least for Boston/New England, the predictions have been terrible. It's almost a negative correlation: the most colorful sunrises and sunsets are almost always blue, and when they predict a good one it's usually completely overcast, or completely cloudless with nothing to reflect off of to produce color. I actually have better luck just checking wunderground.com for cloud cover, and looking for 25-50% around sunset. So I'd caution anyone against getting up early for sunrise pictures based solely on this...
