    Nihiru Island
    S16°41' W142°50'
    In the Taumotus Islands, French Polynesia

    I look up the Air Almanac-2018 and see that the Sun has the 16°41'S declination on 2018-11-08 at 16:20UT when his GHA equals to 69°03,8' which is rather far from the island.The Sun will get to the island at ~21:15UT and his declination will be 16°44,5'S which is NOT perfectly zenith.

    Just some nit-picking...

    :)

    Warm regards,
