Hey Steve, how about a little context? Why are you using the Nautical Almanac for this task? As an exercise, a textbook puzzle (nothing wrong with that, if that's the reason)? If you really need to know when local noon occurred on that date for some practical reason, then why? The application helps decide the approach. There are many tools well-suited to this task that are far easier to use. And what kind of accuracy do you need? Nearest minute? Nearest second? Again why? What's your goal?
