    Quite a lot seems wrong here. From that given location of 36º 48'S, 174º
    46'E (somewhere near Hamilton, NZ?), at 18h 15m 52s GMT on Greenwich date 9
    May 2010, my Skymap program tells me that the apparent altitude of the
    Moon's centre is 33º 54.8', not 20º 33.9', and that of Jupiter to be 39º
    52.2, not 22º 02.6.
    ==================================

    If it's any help:
    ICE gives those parameters as:

    Moon:
    GHA 144-53.2 Dec 3-51.9 N
    Hc 34-38.8 Zn 51.7 Ref -1.5 SD 15.1 PA 45.6 Sum 59.2
    Aries 141-25.3

    Jupiter:
    GHA 145-08.0 Dec 2-46.5 S.
    Hc 39-51.0 Zn 56.9 Refn -1.2 SD 0.3' PA 0
