    Hmmm.... a two-hour difference. This would be roughly equivalent to 1 degree in the Moon's motion. I have a hunch, so I'll offer a clue and maybe it will lead you somewhere: what could throw off a lunar distance by one degree if you add instead of subtract? It would be very early in the process of clearing the distance. Just a thought. The problem may lie elsewhere...
