    I’m having a brain freeze here. When I put the moon complication on one of the corners, it also has a time and duration. What do those mean?
    Right now mine says 1:46am, 7H 54M

    It’s the moon rise time and how much time until then.

    That’s odd because I’m in Eastern Time too and mine says 1:28am 4h 7m

    I went here and checked and it’s correct:

    Yup. It was about 5:55pm pacific time. So 1:46 am would be almost 8 hours, aha! I knew it would make sense. But i thought I had tried that before and it didnt match up, kind of like yours. Guess ill keep a little log to find a pattern
    Now its 6:30pm pacific, but it still says 1:46am 7H 54M
    Curious

    Looks like it’s not updated right away. If you take the complication off to something else and then back it’s updated. May be a glitch or it updates every so often.

    who really cares about moon rise time? Are you guys planning to rob a bank or something?

    I actually like that complication. I often take pictures of the Milky Way and the moon needs to be below the horizon (if it’s not a new moon) for the best picture. Having the moon rise time at a glance is nice when deciding whether to go out and shoot. It’s about an hour and a half drive to really get out of the light pollution for me so I don’t want to make the trek unless it’s worth it.

    Weird. My noon complication just show a picture of the moon and what phase it’s in. How do you get the times?

    It seems like the Infograph complication shows the time of either moonrise OR moonset and time remaining to that event. However, you can't tell which of the two possibilities by looking just at the Infograph complication. I have a Modular face with "moon phase" in the large center complication and swipe back and forth to figure which of the two events that the time/time remaining on the Infograph moon complication is listing. The sun complication shows an arrow to indicate sunrise/sunset. It's like they were more worried about indicating the phase of the moon than indicating what the time is for.

    If you have the moon complication in one of the middle 4 spots, you only get the graphic. Put it in one of the 4 corners and you get the times as well.

    Had similar problems to those reported above but was able to get the times to display below the moon by selecting the complication through on the watch customization. But, the second time displayed does not update unless the face is changed to another and then the Infograph face is brought back. This appears to be a bug.
