Time on the Moon is often measured in relation to Earth’s Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) due to the absence of natural day-night cycles.

NASA has announced plans to establish a new time zone for the Moon as private space endeavors, propelled by the recent successful landing of Intuitive Machines’ IM-1 mission, spur a surge in lunar missions, with the aim of standardizing time measurement beyond Earth in response to heightened traffic to celestial bodies, including Mars, bolstered by both national and private enterprises.
