I am looking to see when, in June of this year, the equation of time reaches its minimum value. As I look at various online sources, I get differing data: June 11, 12 or 13 are all candidates. I presume the various web sites are using differing algorithms, some more accurate and some less so. My problem is that I don't know who to believe.
I have not purchased a standard Nautical Almanac for this year. Could somebody who has either the government-printed one or the commercial edition take a look and tell me what the equation of time values are for June 11 to 13?
Thanks so much,
