... about TIME

Most weather info is presented in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time),
also known as GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) or represented simply with a "z" for Zulu.
To figure out what time a photo was made, use the following table:


Atlantic Std/Eastern Daylight
  subtract 4 hours from UTC
Eastern Std/Central Daylight 
  subtract 5 hours from UTC
Central Std/Mountain Daylight 
  subtract 6 hours from UTC
Mountain Std/Pacific Daylight 
  subtract 7 hours from UTC
Pacific Standard 
  subtract 8 hours from UTC

If you want to get the current, accurate time in both your time zone and UTC,
try this nifty link to a java version of the NIST Atomic Clock


Time zone converter - what time is it in (you choose)?
