What are Solunar tables?
The solunar tables (sun/moon based) provide you the best times of the day and best days of month for activities like fishing.

The best times for this activity are determined monthly by the moon phase. We can find the maximum when full moon or new moon and minor activity periods among them.

Every day have their own best times determined by the moon/sun set, rise, and transit (zenith/nadir). The best times of the day are when moon reach zenith or nadir (opposed to zenith), and there are secondary best times at moonrise and moonset.

Month period are shared worldwide and day times are based on your localization.
