Most people probably wouldn't give it a second thought until they actually think about it, but what is the antarctic time zone exactly? I'll bet you don't know, but that's why these newly updated time zone maps are here to help.
"What time is it?" is not an easy question to answer because every single line of longitude on planet earth goes right through the desolate continent. Even with these maps, it gets tricky to define time down south beyond the never-ending full day/full night cycles. deciding what time it is gets even trickier with lots of countries making different claims on the continent. For disputed zones like these (highlighted in red on the map) there is no time zone, and the area simply observes Coordinated Universal Time, which is the same time zone astronauts in orbit follow.
Now all we need is that antarctic time zone map on a poster so we'll always know what time it is in that deserted winter part of the continent.
