    Re: Longitude, zone time, and local mean time

    First off you have the right answer so you must understand it even if it doesn't feel like it.

    An alternative way to do what Bruce said'

    150 degrees is a zone center and you are 6d 36.8 east of that, therefore a later time.

    Look up 6d 36.8m in increments and corrections and you find that for 26m  27sec for a planet ( 15 deg/hr)

    therefore time is 23:45 + 00:26:27  or  24:11:27
