Local sidereal time equal 0

I suppose if I start a scenario for a satellite at RAAN = 0 , TA= and AOP =0 , I will get LST=0. But, when I tried that with GMAT , the LST had a value > 0.

I tried running the attached script in GMAT R2014a, and I got LST = 359.999999deg, which is basically identical to zero.

What version were you using? Can you send a script?
