Does 15:00 hours mean 3:00 pm?

Do you know military time? Does 1500 hours mean 3:00 pm or 5:00 pm? Please help if you can.

Yes, 1500 hours is 3:00 pm. 5:00 pm is 1700 hours in military time.

yes, many countries use this system of hours.


The times of various events, particularly astronomical and weather phenomena, are often given in "Universal Time" (abbreviated UT) which is sometimes referred to, now colloquially, as "Greenwich Mean Time" (abbreviated GMT). The two terms are often used loosely to refer to time kept on the Greenwich meridian (longitude zero), five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time. Times given in UT are almost always given in terms of a 24-hour clock. Thus, 14:42 (often written simply 1442) is 2:42 p.m., and 21:17 (2117) is 9:17 p.m. Sometimes a Z is appended to a time to indicate UT, as in 0935Z.

Like most other astronomical calculations, eclipse predictions are usually presented in terms of Universal Time. In order to convert eclipse predictions from UT to local time, you need to know what time zone you are in. For North Americans, the conversion from UT to local time is as follows:

Atlantic Standard Time (AST) = UT - 4 hours
Eastern Standard Time (EST) = UT - 5 hours
Central Standard Time (CST) = UT - 6 hours
Mountain Standard Time (MST) = UT - 7 hours
Pacific Standard Time (PST) = UT - 8 hours

Yes, it means 3 pm

1500 hrs is 3 pm
1700 hrs is 5 pm


1500 is 3pm. subract 12 is how you know.

Yes, but you are saying it wrong. 15:00 hours is redundant because they two terms mean the same thing. You just say "fifteen hundred" or "1500."

It means 3 pm because military time is 12 hours more than the correct time. 15-12 is three..
