Do You Know What Time it Is?



docshyDocshy on 05/17/2005

DoYouKnowWhatTimeitIs Photo Can you identify the time zone, based on only its abbreviation? Not to worry, I won't be asking you to tell me the differences between time zones.

Time zones are areas of the Earth that have adopted the same standard time, usually referred to as the local time. All time zones are defined relative to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The reference point for Time Zones is the Prime Meridian (longitude 0) which passes through the Royal Greenwich Observatory in Greenwich, London, United Kingdom [1] (http://greenwichmeantime.com/). For this reason the term Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is still often used (by the BBC, for example, amongst others) to denote the "base time" to which all other time zones are relative. UTC is, nevertheless, the official term for today's atomically measured time as distinct from time determined by astronomical observation as formerly carried out at Greenwich.
