Dear Rene,

Depends.  From the agenda, you can use either org-capture directly, or
org-agenda-capture.  org-capture will convert %U using current time, not
the time of the agenda line -- unless `org-capture-use-agenda-date' is t.

If you want the date the cursor is on, I think 00:00 as a default time 
makes sense, mixing the current time and the date line would be confusing

I guess M-x org-capture is enough here.
