The Azimuth of the Sun at Rise and Set

Enter the latitude in decimal degrees, enter the longitude in decimal degrees, 

You may use the keys "d", or "m" to increase the date or month, 

The azimuth is the angular distance measured along the horizon (compass angle, bearing). The angle is measured clockwise
(eastwards) from the North point: 
The azimuth angle at rise and set (Azo) depends on the current declination (delta) of the Sun and on the latitude (beta) of the observer: At a mid northern latitude (beta=45° N): for sommer solstice (delta = +23.5°) the azimuth angle of the rising Sun is and for winter solstice (delta = 23.5°): 

Use the Write... menu to get a table, which can be printed (by copy and paste).
