    I'm still wondering if we are talking about the same planet.
    We cannot use the declination for this computation only because the ecliptical 
    latitude of the sun is a non zero value. This year 2004 at the moment of 
    equinox (06:49) was the apparant ecliptical longitude of the sun 00?00'00" 
    and the apparant ecliptical latitude of the sun -00?00'00.4".
    whitch are the ecliptical coordinates of the earth with a phase shift of 180?.
    
    Make a test with ICE, that good old dos ephemeris, and try the start value 
    20/03/2004 06:49 and a step of 1 second with planet earth.
