The entire state of California is located within the Pacific time zone. As of 2014, the state observes Pacific Standard Time between the middle of the fall and the end of the winter. At all other times, Pacific Daylight Time is observed.
A:GMT is commonly known as Greenwich Mean Time. It is considered the world standard time. It is also referred to as "UTC," or Coordinated Universal Time. Conversion of a time listed in GMT to Eastern Daylight Time is a matter of subtraction.
A:Time zone fallout refers to political candidates being disadvantaged by news of rival successes broadcast from different time zones in the same country. An example of this was Reagan's 1980 victory on the East Coast being broadcast to the West Coast, discouraging some West Cost voters from voting.
A:The abbreviation GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time or Greenwich Meridian Time. The Prime Meridian, or 0 degrees longitude, passes close to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich village near London. This is taken as the reference for calculating time zones east or west of the Prime Meridian.
A:Arizona is in the Mountain Time Zone, according to the Arizona State Library. It is one of few places in the United States that does not observe daylight-saving time, so Arizona is on Mountain Standard Time year round.
A:The entire state of California is located within the Pacific time zone. As of 2014, the state observes Pacific Standard Time between the middle of the fall and the end of the winter. At all other times, Pacific Daylight Time is observed.
A:According to the United States Naval Observatory, there are a total of eight time zones in North America. They cover the land from Newfoundland in the far east to the Aleutian Islands of Alaska in the far west.
A:The equivalent in the United States of 12:00 PM Pacific Standard Time is as late as 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time and as early as 9:00 AM Hawaiian Standard Time. It is 2:00 in the afternoon in Central Standard Time and 1:00 in the afternoon in Mountain Standard Time. The time is 11:00 in the morning in Alaska Standard Time and 10:00 AM according to Hawaiian-Aleutian Standard Time.
A:Find the current time in different time zones by consulting TimeAndDate.com, WorldTimeZone.com or 24TimeZones.com. As of 2015, all sites give the present time all over the world; the first one by the name of the city or country and the second two by using maps.
A:The African transition zone known as Sahel is one of the nation's eight major geographic regions boasting its own unique mix of flora and fauna. It is located in northern Africa and is so named because its long, narrow shape creates a transition zone between the Sahara and the savanna.
A:When it is 4 p.m. EST, it is 1 p.m. PST. Eastern Standard Time (EST) is the earliest time zone in the United States and comprises 17 eastern states and the District of Columbia. Eastern Standard Time is five hours behind Coordinated Universal Time, equivalent to Greenwich Mean Time.
A:Greenwich Mean Time is determined by how many degrees of longitude a location or region is from the Greenwich Meridian line. Each 15 degree shift of longtitude from Greenwich Meridian signifies a one-hour difference, giving the Earth 24 different time zones that correspond to the 360 degrees of a circle. Greenwich Mean Time is used as the basis for coordination of time zones around the world.
A:To convert Coordinated Universal Time, also known as Greenwich Meridian Time, to your local time, use an online converter, such as the tool provided by WorldTimeServer.com. Alternatively, you can convert the time manually using a time zone table, such as the one provided by EarthSky Communications at its website.
A:There are 24 different time zones in the world set at 15 degree longitude intervals in between. The Earth completes one full rotation in 24 hours at a speed of 15 degrees per hour. The premise behind time zones is that the world is theoretically divided into 24 equal longitudinal zones and the time is accordingly adjusted in each zone by an hour.
A:When the time is 18:00 GMT, it is noon in the eastern United States, 11 a.m. in the central United States, 10 a.m. in the mountains, 9 a.m. along the Pacific, 8 a.m. in Alaska and 6 a.m. in Hawaii. The time 18:00 GMT is the same as 6 p.m.
A:Japan Standard Time, or JST, is 13 to 17 hours ahead of time zones in the 48 contiguous United States. During U.S. daylight savings time, Eastern Daylight Time, or EDT, is 13 hours behind JST. During standard time, Pacific Standard Time, or PST, is 17 hours behind JST.
A:The equivalent of 11:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. (GMT-05:00) Eastern time (U.S. & Canada) is 8:30 a.m. - 9 a.m. in Pacific Time. This is because Pacific Time is (GMT-08:00). Eastern Time, being (GMT-05:00), is three hours ahead of the Pacific Time.
