Thanks for the problem, Frank! I realized I made an error about three-quarters into the sight! I assume the time you gave was LOCAL time not UT. Well I finished it just to go through the motions but I know it is WRONG.
I'll try again now realizing it is UT not local time and remember to read the details very closely.
I realized the issue when I was trying to picture where the sun would be in my mind relative to the azimuth and had the Aha! moment then because a Z of 99 at 14:00 local time does not make sense. The sun would be in front of me not behind me at 14:00 local time.
