    Yes, I checked into the possibility that there was some time offset (this might arise during the transcription of observing notes, for example). So I checked for other times during the night when the observations might have made sense. Suffice to say, it doesn't work. An error of whole day would be much too large if you think about it. This error would yield lunars out of line by some 13.5 degrees.
