Rule running when trigger is not right

I have a rule that is suppose to run right before sunset, If I click run actions at 6PM the flag light turns on.. If I turn the light off and run the action again, it turns back on.. The time in HE is correct.

You're rule is set to run 15 minutes after sunset, not before.

What you describe is the correct action for Run Actions. What were you expecting to happen? If you turn on logging you should see this as correct.

This is exactly what Run Actions is supposed to do. Run Actions bypasses the trigger, as a means to test the actions, or to just cause them. The rule will trigger at the single time as well.
