HAST is UTC-10

The Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone observes Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HAST), by subtracting ten hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC-10). The clock time in this zone is based on the mean solar time of the 150th meridian west of the Greenwich Observatory.

The zone takes its name from the two areas it includes: Hawaii and the portion of Alaska's Aleutian Islands west of 169° 30′ W longitude. The Alaskan portion observes DST while Hawaii does not.

Hawaii used a standard time of GMT-10:30 from 1900 until 1947, when clocks were changed to the present -10:00 zone. [1]
