Day-of-week is the same, but KIND OF off by 60 minutes

I don't see any other posts about this:

* It's very cool that day-of-the-week matches between 1970 and 2020. E.g., April 11 is on a Saturday in both 1970 and 2020.

* Here in the second week of April, 2020, we are on Daylight Saving Time, but DST didn't begin in 1970 until April 26. So when we're watching Apollo 13 50-years-to-the-second later, we're *kind of* off by 60 minutes. As I type this, it's 4:03pm CST in 1970 but 4:03pm CDT in 2020.

Shortly after posting that, I see this tweet from the NASA History Office:
