Figuring out EST time so I can attend meeting

Post by Beatific1 » Tue Jun 20, 2017 6:53 pm

Help. I am trying to figure out how to calculate the meeting times. They say 8pm EST. I have the same time as London here. So do I subtract 6hrs? Is there daylight savings? I am confused but think the meetings are 2pm London time?

Does anyone here know? :|

EST (UTC-4) is 5 hours behind London (UTC+1)

Thanks so much. If I understood correctly that makes it 1am London time? Lucky for me that I am an insomniac 8-)

Mmm...just found a converter online that says 8pm EST /EDT is 4am London time. :( that's a little more problematic. Still confused

I see you were at the meeting so you must have figured it out! Glad you were able to join us. :-)

Yes. Thanks so much. It was great. It is 1am my time but luckily I work evenings and don't have to get up early.
