Landing time was 23:53:44, Earth Received Time
Just got a press release that told me the landing time was 23:53:44, as received on Earth. This is only 11 seconds later than the last nominal touchdown time I have on a final copy of the planning timeline -- so it's pretty darn close to center. That would put the landing time at 15 minutes and 20 seconds earlier, 23:38:24.
I'm still waiting to hear about the preliminary solution on the latitude and longitude of the landing site.
