I am having trouble understanding Zulu time. I dont know the time of East, West, Central, and Mountain time zones in Zulu time and if I add or subtract and how much to add or subtract? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

UTC is the same as Zulu time.

Zulu time is, basically, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). It's fairly easy in the UK because during the summer we are GMT+1 (BST) and in winter we are on GMT.

Right now, I'm in Sydney, which is GMT+9, so it's 2347 in the UK now, but 0847 here in Sydney. You could always go to the clock on your computer and check the time zones there.

Sorry EGTESkyGod, SYD ( MEL,BNE & HBA, as well) is GMT +10 normally and will go to GMT +11 for the October to March daylight saving period.(Except BNE, Queensland does not have daylight saving). PER is GMT +8 and ADL is GMT +9.5 (god knows why)

Sorry, you are quite right...... UK are currently on BST, not GMT, so it's BST+9 which is equal to GMT+10. My bad!!

A topic made for me!

The most odd one I've ever seen is the Nepalese local time - it's 5 hours and 45 minutes ahead of zulu time. It's not uncommon to have time differences of half-hours (e.g. India at UTC+05:30, Iran at 03:30 etc) but I think Nepal at UTC+05:45 is the only place with a 15-minute variance. It means that there is a 15 minute time change if you're flying between India and Nepal....

All of China has one time zone. This is odd for a country of that size, but they make it work. Even more strange, some places in the USA do not observe daylight savings time, while most of the country does.

The Chatham Islands in New Zealand are 45 minutes different from New Zealand standard time - which means that when New Zealand is on daylight saving time the Chathams are 15 minutes behind New Zealand as they dont ( AFAIK ) do daylight saving on the Chathams ... but I agree , it is a very unusual time variance
