HI,

I have data with a time stamp of 171762597.071947, can you tell me please 
the Julian day conversion and/or how to get from there to a a UT and date?

I tried taking the begin time of the space craft (1999 Dec) and subtracting 
that in days from my observation date (2003 Oct). but I didn't get close, 
even after converting the time difference to seconds. It seems the clock 
time zero started about 1997 in May. But maybe I should be assuming the 
units are in seconds in the first place.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

Mel Ulmer

Dear Norbert,

If I take your time stamp and then convert to number of seconds since the 
time stamp , I get the time should have been
 
2003,06,11,23:48:53.88 to yield 171762597.071947 (acutally with my juilan
day converter in IDL etc the closest I could get due to round off error
was 171762597.0719486474990845); the calculation I did was
(julian1-julian)*3600.d0*24.

Where julian1 = the julian day of the observation
(2452802.4922903566621244) and julian = the julian day of the time stamp
(2450814.4992686905898154).
 
Did I do something wrong? I'm off by about 9 seconds.
 
Regards,

Mel

Dear Mel,

sorry, I can not reproduced what I did
to calculate the time which I sent in
the previous message. Re-doing it, I 
came to exactly the same time which
you are giving in your last e-mail.

With best regards
Norbert
