The code does not appear to be working properly for me. I am trying to calculate the solar time of the ISS, and the solar day takes about 2.75 hours instead of 1.5 as expected. I further checked my results by plugging time and longitude into a converter on the NOAA website. It returned an Equation of Time that differed by 4%. Any ideas? Do you have some examples of where it works.

11 Oct 2012 International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) Model Get the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) output parameters. Author: Drew Compston Brandon

On line 496 in iri.m, there is a conversion from time into hours (in decimal form), and I think there is a mistake. The conversion divides seconds by 360 when I think it should be 3600.
