Ah,the mean solar day,tell me how you get the 24 hour day and I will
even allow you tour geostationary point of view seeing that you are
iconcerned about sunrise/sunsets.Tell me how you use the Sun to
determine the difference between natural noon and clock noon.
When it is all done,I might even explain to you why your calendrically
driven sidereal day is driving everything from timekeeping astronomy
to stuctural;astrology.The chances are that you will vanish besides
the thoughts of having to explain to another programmer why he is
hopelessly lost in astronomical affairs is hardly worth the effort
As for getting the point,none of you ever do.
