  Coordinated Universal Time

  ITU-T X.680
  leap second
  UTC
  World Time
  Zulu time
  
      (UTC, World Time) The standard time common to
     every place in the world.  UTC is derived from International
     Atomic Time (TAI) by the addition of a whole number of "leap
     seconds" to synchronise it with Universal Time 1 (UT1), thus
     allowing for the eccentricity of the Earth's orbit, the
     rotational axis tilt (23.5 degrees), but still showing the
     Earth's irregular rotation, on which UT1 is based.
  
     Coordinated Universal Time is expressed using a 24-hour clock
     and uses the Gregorian calendar.  It is used in aeroplane
     and ship navigation, where it also sometimes known by the
     military name, "Zulu time".  "Zulu" in the phonetic alphabet
     stands for "Z" which stands for longitude zero.
  
     UTC was defined by the International Radio Consultative
     Committee ({CCIR), a predecessor of the ITU-T.  CCIR
     Recommendation 460-4, or ITU-T Recommendation X.680 (7/94),
     contains the full definition.
  
     The language-independent international abbreviation, UTC, is
     neither English nor French.  It means both "Coordinated
     Universal Time" and "Temps Universel Coordonné".
