    Another Question About Time Zones

    Sorry to post another thread on the topic (I deleted the other one because I didn't need it anymore), but early this week I hope to be involved with a fan chat session with The Go-Go's on Zoom and I am hopelessly confused about time zone conversion. I've come across lots of websites for this, but it's still confusing. I don't want to miss this chat session which will take place Monday August 3 at 4:00 PM Pacific Time/7:00 PM Eastern Time in the US, and I need to know what that time would be in Adelaide, Australia time. I keep getting different times and I don't know which is correct.

    At least I now know that the Suzy Bogguss chats are whatever US Central Time is plus 14.5 Hours, but I'm completely new to Pacific/Eastern time.

    Hi Mikey,

    Pacific Time (PT) - also known as Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) -7

    Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), is GMT +10

    Australian Central Standard Time (ACST), is GMT +9.30

    The city of Adelaide is within the ACST timezone.

    This means that when when PDT is 4pm on a certain day, in Adelaide, it is 8.30am of the NEXT day.

    So 4pm on Monday 3rd August for PDT is the same as 8.30am on Tuesday 4th August in Adelaide.

    As an extra layer of check, I have also added Eastern Time (ET) to the savvytime.com website, and when PDT is 4pm, I can see ET is 7PM, as you have noted above.

    Thankyou my dear friend Iluvart! Much appreciated!

    I can't believe I am actually going to be chatting live with The Go-Go's tomorrow morning, I have all night to think of the questions I wish to ask each of the members. I especially look forward to speaking with Charlotte Caffey as she is a huge inspiration to me.

    Thanks to Iluvart, I've worked out that PDT is US PDT plus 16.5 hours. These numbers are so confusing, but the chats are so worth it!
