Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is the basis for civil time in many places worldwide. Many timekeeping devices use this 24-hour time standard, which is determined using highly precise atomic clocks. The hours, minutes, and seconds that UTC expresses is kept close to the mean solar time at the Earth’s prime meridian (zero degrees longitude) located near Greenwich, England.
