    Well, a UT of 04:55:24 at a position N/S 00d 00'.0 E104d 16'.8 on 23/09/02
    is the only time which yields:
    
    LHA Aries 180d 00'.0, Alt 90d 00'.0, SHA 180d 00'.0, and Dec N/S 00d 00'.0
    
    for the sun's centre although calculations for its meridian transit insist
    it happens a second earlier, presumably due to rounding.
