The date/time of moon age and the next four major lunar phases are in Universal Time (Greenwich Time, longitude=0). To convert date/time of lunar phases to your local time zone is to add the date/time with your time zone hour number. For example,
New moon date/time is 6-13-99 19:03 at UT.
|If PST (time zone = - 8), the new moon date/time is 6-13-1999 11:03, after subtracting 8 hours|
|If EST (time zone = - 5), the new moon date/time is 6-13-1999 14:03, after subtracting 5 hours.|
|If China (time zone = 8), the new moon date/time is 6-14-1999 03:03, after adding 8 hours.|
Because new moon day is the first day of a Chinese lunar month, therefore Chinese lunar month for June 1999 using in USA time zones are different from the one using in China time zone.
|Daylight saving Time need to be adjusted for one hour|
|If PDT (time zone = - 8) , the new moon date/time is 6-13-1999 12:03, after subtracting 7 hours|
|If EDT (time zone = - 5) , the new moon
date/time is 6-13-1999 15:03, after subtracting 4 hours.
