Thanks (and of course congratulations!) to Hubert for notifying this
rare outburst.  The typo was caused by manual conversion from JD --
we recommend to use UT values (as above), especially for notifying
such time-critical observations.  This is, as I understand, one of
the main reasons for preferring UT over JD in exchanging reports
of transient objects.
