Satellite does not lie (Human does)

Something came up to my mind. i received a QSL card for a satellite QSO one year prior to the date i get the card. And for an unexplainable 
reason this QSO was not in my log. We have another tool available to check if with the time reported on the card this satellite was at 
least in view at that time. Just set back your pc clock around the past date and play with you program to see if it's matching a co-
visibility foot print.

It was not but when i try local to UTC time switch it does. This fellow discharge himself from his burden of proof and he got my card but 
not before he sends me a corrected one.
