Lunar Standard Time — Moon’s own Time Zone!

Did you know that the Moon has its time zone? It’s called “Lunar Standard Time” (LST) ⏱

LST is based on the Moon’s rotation around its axis. From one sunrise to the next, a “day” on the Moon is 29.5 Earth days long. So LST is 29.5 Earth hours long 🛰

The Moon’s time zone is essential for planning missions to the Moon. For example, if a spacecraft is scheduled to land on the Moon at 10:00 am LST, the landing site must be in sunlight 🚀

Lunar Standard Time is not used on Earth 🌍 But it’s an excellent way to keep track of time on the Moon 🤯

So the next time you look up at the Moon, think about what time it is 🤩
