### Question concerning the validity of the Sunrise equation

I have done calculations for sunrise and sunset Jan 2st, 2000 Zagreb.

Here is what I gotten:

n=1

Jx=0.9556

M=358.4709396

C=-0.049

λ=641.359

Jt=2451545.503

siny=-0.3822

y=-22.47

cos(wo)=0.4029

wo=66.24

From which it follows that:

Jset=2451545,503+66.24/360°

Jrise=2451545,503-66.24/360°

Jrise= 24*(0,503-0.184)=7.656h=7h and 39.36min

Jset= 24*(0,503+0.184)=16.488h=16h and 29.28min

But this does not correspond with the data for Jan 2st, 2000 Zagreb when it says that the Sunrise occurred at 07:37 and Sunset occurred at 16:22

Did i make a mistake somewhere in the calculations, or is the equation flawed?
