    Again the same mistake: Paul solved for dec = 0, instead of lon = 0. The correct
    time is 6:49:42 TT, corresponding to 6:48:38 UT.
    I tried to forward to the list two of my own messages and one written by George
    Huxtable  at the occasion of the spring and fall equinoxes of 2002. Maybe, this does
    not work, if the list server does not permit it. If the messages don't get through,
    you might want to check the archives for these times.
