    Of course I got this backwards -- the assumed longitude would
    be west of the true position in this case (unless I've confused
    myself even more).
    Then simply use the (erroneous) watch time as if it were GMT
    for looking things up in the almanac.  You'll end up with nearly
    the same LHA for most bodies, except of course the moon (which
    is the point of the exercise).
