High noon at the courthouse

Recommended Posts

Anchorage, Alaska is at roughly 150° W longitude from the Greenwich Meridian.

High noon in London occurs at 12:00 PM GMT.

High noon in Anchorage occurs (150 / 360) * 24 = 10 hours later, or 10:00 PM by Greenwich Mean Time.

Alaska Standard Time (winter time) is 9 hours behind GMT or UTC.

Alaska Daylight Time (summer time) is only 8 hours behind GMT/UTC.

Thus high noon in Anchorage occurs at 1:00 PM in the winter and 2:00 PM in the summer by "local" time zone convention.

It's too early in the morning for some people to get up, but it's August, and the weather is so hot & humid that I pass unconscious of heatstroke about 2:00 or 3:00 PM — it's a mandatory siesta.
