Time reference in experiments

  1. Jul 8, 2005 #1
    When I have to refer to when a certain event happened in a physics experiment, such as when the deep impact blast occured, should i use US Eastern Time, GMT or UTC? What is the standard used when writing this stuff? :confused:

    You can use any, just make sure you say GMT Zulu Time or whatever suffix so people can reference to it (I tend to see GMT used)
