UTC: Coordinated Universal Time

As a global scientific project, SETI@home keeps time using Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and a twenty four hour clock. (UTC is also known as GMT, or Greenwich Mean Time.) Use the following conversion table to convert UTC to your own local time zone. For example, if it is 23:00 UTC and you live in the Pacific Daylight time zone, the conversion factor is -7 hours, which means the local time is 16:00, or 4 pm.
