    Re: Time from 2102-D starfinder
    From: Chuck Taylor

    Oops.  Not having immediate access to a starfinder, I said GHA but meant LHA.
    From LHA of Aries and your longitude, you can calculate GHA of Aries, then go
    into the almanac to find the time corresponding to that GHA.  Your proposal
    sounds reasonable too.

    time
    aries passes your position.
