I have a REALLY stupid question!

What does UTC mean? I've seen this before and I have no idea what it means!  ???


UTC= Coordinated Universal Time.

THE atomic time standard from which all other times zones are derivated. Formerly GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) - but don't ask me why they changed it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utc


UTC is the actual time in Great Britain in winter time, but in summer, GB is UTC+1 (due to daylight saving time).

Germany is UTC+1 in winter, but UTC+2 in summer.

Okay! Thanks Chrissi! I knew what Greenwich Mean Time was. I didn't realize they had changed it.

Thanks for explaining this to me Chrissi!!  :)
