DescriptionReturns the Solar Equation of Time in degrees for a given point in time.
Time Value Formats
All MJD and SDY values are expressed in UT. A <TimeZone> appended to the time value is informational only and doesn't affect the time value.
Return ValuessdxEOT returns a double precision number. The Solar Equation of Time varies on an annual cycle. The minimum value is approximately -3.75 degrees, the maximum +4.2 degrees.
A positive EOT means that True Solar Time is ahead of Mean (Clock) Solar
Solar Equation of Time is calculated using algorithms published in Meeus, Jean. "Astronomical Algorithms" 2nd Ed., Willmann-Bell.
