Utc Time Z

From LongJump Support Wiki

The Zulu time zone (Z) is the same zone as the Greenwich or Prime Meridian with no offset written as UTC +0:00. This means that it exactly the same as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The US Military, Chinese Military, and several others have adopted a unique list of names for the time zones across the world. The Time Zone Converter converts times instantly as you type. Convert between major world cities, countries and timezones in both directions. Zulu, or Z Time is UTC Time, only by a different name. To understand where the 'z' comes from, consider the world's time zones. YEach is expressed as a certain number of hours 'ahead of UTC' or 'behind UTC'? (For example, UTC -5 is Eastern Standard Time.). Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) originally referred to the mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. It is now often used to refer to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) when this is viewed as a time zone, and in casual use for the most parts it is the same.

Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) If the time is in UTC, add a Z directly after the time without a space. Z is the zone designator for the zero UTC offset. '09:30 UTC' is therefore represented as '09:30Z' or 'T0930Z'. '14:45:15 UTC' would be '14:45:15Z' or 'T144515Z'.

  • Although the standard allows for milliseconds, the platform does not use them or accept them.
  • The final character in the format designates the time zone, where Z is 'zero-time', or Greenwich Mean Time.
