Time Around the World
Time.Gov - Java: Eastern, Central Mountain Pacific - Text: Eastern Central Mountain Pacific
Universal Time: Coordinated (UTC) replaced Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) as the world time standard in 1986, because it is based on “predictable” atomic measurements (vibration of the Cesium atom) rather than the “irregular” variation of the earth's rotation. UTC is kept within 0.9 seconds of GMT or UT-1 by virtue of Leap Seconds.
