... that's 2.20pm BST I reckon. Seriously, when I rule the world I'm going to pass a law that makes everyone who gives a time for an event also give the time of that event in GMT or BST, in brackets, after "EST", "PDT", "Mountain Hillbilly Time" or "Huh! Hammer Time!" laugh.gif

1:20pm BST I reckon.

Apart from the few odd weeks when the UK's switch to summer time, but the US hasn't - then Eastern is -5, Pacific is -8.

5.20am Pacific, plus 8, is 1.20 pm UK.

5:10 a.m. PDT (1:10 p.m. GMT) is, I'm fairly sure....WRONG . 5.10 PDT is 12.10 GMT, 1.10pm BST. NOT 1.10pm GMT.

And just to complain a little more, it took me ages to realize that ET is not (always) Eastern Time but Ephemeris Time.

So the transmission starts at 5:21:06 am ET EDT ERT

Oh - and...
"5 - 6:30 a.m. - LRO Spacecraft Enters Lunar Orbit - Live Event - GSFC (Public, Media and HD Channel)"

It's 5.20 am Eastern now...but this hasn't started.

So I'm very confused.

(no longer confused - coverage is just about to start)

It's about to start now .... 5:20am EDT ... as indicated on Twitter. LCROSS I think is at 5:20 PDT

EDIT: LRO coverage has started on NTV media channel

EDIT2: Apologies I havent been able to create a realtime simulation for it ... a very interesting side effect of using javascripts in there is that the times are automatically converted into local time! I will try for LCROSS, but cant promise

LCROSS - Video emissions just started, but we're getting at the moment only live-telementry based graphics. No real-time pics from the moon yet
