Template documentation

This template simply returns the integer hour on two digits (between 00 and 23) for the time in parameter.

Syntax :
  • The time must be in the hh:mm format (between 00:00 and 23:60 or 24:00), or can be any valid numeric expression of a real number of days.
  • For compatibility with some time indications that use 24:00 or 23:60 on leap seconds, or for the end of day, this template return 24 only for those two specific values. This allows correct computing of julian day timestamps.


  • {{HOUR|12:43}} gives 12
  • {{HOUR|1.2}} gives 01.2
  • {{HOUR|-1.2}} gives 22.8
  • {{HOUR|11.2}} gives 11.2
  • {{HOUR|{{MJD}}}} gives 11.882835648001
  • {{HOUR|{{MJD}}+1.25}} gives 13.132835648001
