    Well looks like I was way off! 
    I’ll need to have a look at your spreadsheets Sean!

    According to my spreadsheet:

    2021, December 21st  15:59:25 UT1

    GHA: 60°17'41" = longitude: 60°17'41" W

    Dec.: 23°26'15" S

    Actually, it appears to be somewhere between 25 and 26 seconds. But that's splitting hairs, really. At 25 seconds the geocentric longitude is given as: 269°59'59.982"

    The location of the sub-solar point seems to be in the middle of some kind of farm about 12 NM east of a place called Estancia Zunilda, Paraguay.

    Regards,

    Sean C.
