what is pacific standard time? :s

Answer #1

The Pacific Time Zone observes standard time by subtracting eight hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC-8). The clock time in this zone is based on the mean solar time of the 120th meridian west of the Greenwich Observatory. During daylight saving time, its time offset is UTC-7.

In the United States and Canada, this time zone is generically called Pacific Time (PT). Specifically, it is Pacific Standard Time (PST) when observing standard time (Winter), and Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) when observing daylight saving time (Summer). Canada follows United States daylight time. In Mexico the UTC-8 time zone is known as the Northwest Zone, which formerly was synchronized with the U.S. PDT daylight saving schedule.
