What time is it? Now, that seems to be a simple question that would have a simple answer. But, it would depend where you where. Now tell me, if you were in Antarctica standing right at the South Pole (or at the other end of the earth standing at the north pole if the ice hasn't melted yet), that question would be a little harder to answer. All the time zones run together at the poles. At least you don't have to worry when daylight savingstime starts or ends if you live at the poles.
So, what time is it at the poles? Since no one lives at the north pole except Santa Claus (and he only cares what day Christmas falls on) it is a mute point. But, people do live at the south pole. There is a lot of reseach that goes on down there and in fact it is a great place to observe the sky. No city lights and during our summer here, they are having almost day long darkness. It is far enough away from civilization that interference is at a minimum. But, being directly at the south pole does present a problem if you are keeping a log and want to put the time down when something happened. I guess since all the time zones run together at the poles, you can take your choice. Well, that could be solution but I have read that they use to use GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) but that is no more, it is history. Now they use UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). I am also wondering, don't they have the initials mixed up? Shouldn't be CUT instead? Maybe they didn't like it to spell the word "cut"? I guess I will just have to keep on wondering about it. . . Now no matter what time you use, have a great day today, you hear?
