    Dear Greg,
    
    I figure that the transit occurred here at 13-21-24???
    
    Best regards, and thank you again for your advice.

    Steve,
    I get 11:51 for meridian passage of the Sun on 9/27/2015. This is for standard 
    time. Daylight savings or summer time will be +1 hour 12:51. Then you will 
    have to figure arc to time for your longitude. 1° west of prime meridian is 4 
    minutes of time later. 1° east is 4 minutes of time sooner. For example if 
    you were in Chicago then the meridian passage would be about 8 minutes sooner 
    plus 1 hour for daylight savings 12:43.  If LAN is being observed with a 
    sextant then there is around 4 minutes either side of meridian passage to 
    mark the observation.

    Dear Navlisters,
     
    How does one determine the meridian passage of the sun using the Nautical 
    Almanac 2015 Commercial Edition*, daily pages, specifically referencing the 
    data located on the right hand bottom of the far right hand page for 27 
    September?
