Antarctica Antarctica Antarctica Current Local Time & Date, Time Zone and Time Difference

Antarctica is a continental landmass without a permanent population. Due to its position at the South Pole, every line of latitude travels through Antarctica, which means that in theory it should have 24 different time zones. In reality, though, there are 11 different time zones, determined by the countries which claim rights to Antarctica and the presence of their research stations. The time zones in force range from GMT -6 to GMT +13.
