    10:09:18 UT when it reaches Venus.
    According to Ralph's
    change is equivalent to 405 feet in latitude (= 0.0767 mile or 0.1235 km) at
    that position on the globe. I think that Tomas was more than a little
    fortunate. :~)

    and a time correction of GMT +2. I obtained the time correction someplace on
    the Internet. I may be wrong in that.
