Eastern-standard time is 5 hours behind Zulu time, while central, mountain and pacific standard times are respectively 6 hours, 7 hours and 8 hours behind Zulu time. This means that you will subtract one of these numbers from the Zulu time to obtain the local standard time but. This is a list of military time zones as defined in the ACP 121(I) standard.

Problem: Zulu Time to Local Time

Time

Overview:

Stating the time as 9 o’clock, for example, can be confusing since it can mean either 9:00 a.m. or 9:00 p.m. Also, the time changes when moving from one time zone to another. In particular, the time decreases by one hour for each time zone change going from the eastern-time zone to the pacific-time zone. For example, 9:00 a.m. eastern-standard time is 8:00 a.m. in central-standard time, 7:00 a.m. in mountain-standard time, and 6:00 a.m. in pacific-standard time. A further concern when dealing with time is standard time versus daylight savings time. The possible confusion in the actual time of day is avoided in aviation by using the time on one designated 24-hour clock. Greenwich (England) mean time, also called Zulu time, is the one used in aviation. With the use of Zulu time, all pilots and air traffic controllers will be recording the same time independent of their local time and, in turn, their locations in the world.

Problem:

You will be given a Zulu time and an indication of the United States time zone that you are in. The time zone indicators are E for eastern-standard time, C for central-standard time, M for mountain-standard time and P for pacific-standard time. You are to produce the local standard time that would appear on a 12-hour clock for the indicated time zone and given Zulu time. Along with the local standard time, you must produce the appropriate a.m. or p.m. designation.

Time

Eastern-standard time is 5 hours behind Zulu time, while central, mountain and pacific standard times are respectively 6 hours, 7 hours and 8 hours behind Zulu time. This means that you will subtract one of these numbers from the Zulu time to obtain the local standard time but on a 24-hour clock. [Note: Zulu time is normally given as four digits such as 0700 (read oh seven hundred hours) but we will not enter leading zeros for our problem.]

Input:

The Zulu time comes first on one line and is a non-negative integer in the range 0 to 2359. The next input line contains the time zone indicator (E, C, M or P).

Output:

You are to print to the screen one sentence that states the local standard time along with the appropriate a.m. or p.m. designator. Also, your output must show the hours portion separated from the minutes portion with a colon (:) and without spaces before or after the colon. Last, the minutes portion must be shown with two digits. For example, 5 minutes after 8 is written as 8:05.

All aspects of meteorology are based upon a world-wide 24-hour clock called Zulu time (Z), more commonly called Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). You will notice all weather maps, radar, and satellite images all have their time expressed in 'Z'. The Zulu term stems from military usage while Coordinated Universal Time is the civilian term for this 24-hour clock.

The origin of these time zones began in the mid 1800's in England. In 1852 the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England began transmitting time telegraphically and just three years later became the standard time in most of Great Britain. Also, charts and maps were made with reference to the observatory as the 'zero' or prime meridian.

Over the next few decades a number of locations around the world had developed their own meridians as reference points. The Greenwich meridian was the most popular of these in part due to the reputation for reliability and correctness of the Greenwich Observatory's publications of navigational data.

In 1884, a conference in Washington, D.C. settled the matter where it was agreed to establish a single 'prime' meridian (0° longitude), passing through Greenwich. This was for both for longitude and timekeeping. This 0° meridian divides the Eastern from the Western Hemisphere. Today, one can visit the Royal Observatory and straddle this 0° meridian with one foot in each hemisphere.

With the 360° daily rotation of the earth, the sun is moving 15° each hour which leads to the formation of 24 time zones. However, today the individual zone boundaries are no longer straight, nor are they always continuous, as they have been modified for convenience and to satisfy the desires of sovereign nations.

1600 Zulu Time To Pacific Time

Time zone offsets are identified as -12 UTC through 0 to +12 UTC with the minus values signifying time 'before' or ahead of prime meridian (which is the Western Hemisphere). At the meeting of the -12 and +12 time zones is the International Date Line.

Zulu Time Chart

Moving west across the International Date Line one moves from the -12 UTC time zone to the +12 UTC time zone. This means you advance the clock 24 hours; in essence you advance one day on the calendar. Moving east across the International Date Line means subtracting 24 hours from the clock thereby reversing one day on the calendar.

The 24-hour clock (Z-time) begins at midnight (00Z) at this prime meridian. 00Z for the United States begins in the evening local time. Z-time does not change with the change for daylight saving time but the local time will change. For example, 00Z in the Central STANDARD Time is at 6:00 p.m. but 00Z occurs at 7:00 p.m. in Central DAYLIGHT SAVING Time.
