15th MEU Realsim Unit operations happen at 19:00CST on Sundays, that's 7:00pm Central Standard Time in time zone GMT -6, and typically last no more than 3 hours.
To calculate the time operation time in your time zone take the operation time (19:00CST / 7pm / GMT -6), add the offset to get back to 0 GMT (+6), add your own time zone offset (see picture below). If you are in or east of time zone GMT -1 (Azores or Cape Verde) you will be into the Monday.
- Example: France (GMT +1) = 7pm + 6 (to get back to 0 GMT) + 1 = from 2am Monday morning until 5am (02:00 to 05:00) your time.
- Example: eastern Australia (GMT +10) = 7pm + 6 (to get back to 0 GMT) + 10 = 11am Monday morning until 2pm (11:00 to 14:00) your time.
- Example: Hawaii (GMT -10) = 7pm + 6 (to get back to 0 GMT) - 10 = 3pm Sunday afternoon until 6pm (15:00 to 18:00) your time.
