UT1-UTC on a day containing a leap second

    Details

      Description

      GMAT currently linearly interpolates the daily UT1-UTC values to obtain UT1-UTC at the integration time. An alternate scheme should be employed on the day of a leap second because UT1-UTC changes discontinuously at the leap second and linearly interpolated values will be erroneous on that day.

      Use the SOHO pass on 12/31/2016 to test this fix.
