Date and time in absolute values



Hi,

this list will be read by hundrets of satellite enthusiasts spread all
over the world. So all contributers of information please give any time
and date info in UTC and absolute date ! And not in the form "today at
2:04 PST will be ...". What is "today" for a reader in Europe or in
Asia? And the several timezones in US with their offsets and perhaps
daylight savings are not common in the rest of the world ! 
Think of the problems which NASA had in handling of two measurement
systems last year .... ;-))
