Does anyone know how to calculate Magnetic Local Time for a position on earth, given the current Universal Time, and the position in Geomagnetic latitude/longitude?

At night, when you and your nearest magnetic pole and the Sun are on the same plane, you are at local magnetic midnight. From that point in time you measure local magnetic time in the normal manner of one hour per 15° of longitude.
