Today Tuesday, 1st of September of 2015, the sun will rise in Atka at 8:50 am and sunset will be at 10:23 pm. The moon rose in the east (83º) at 12:28 am and will set in the west (281º) at 1:55 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 13 hours and 33 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 3:36 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 27 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 104. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 97 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 91. The tide heights today are 1.3 ft, 2.6 ft, 1.3 ft and 3.0 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Atka which is of 4.6 ft and a minimum height of -1.6 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Atka tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 12:28 am to 1:28 am, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 7:11 am to 9:11 am, high activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 1:55 pm to 2:55 pm, average activity minor period (moonset)
from 7:27 pm to 9:27 pm, high activity Major period (moon down)
Tide timetable for Atka. The times are generated in local time in Southwest Alaska and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Atka are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in feet referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
