Please help probably same mistake as the last time but can't find it :(

I can't find what's wrong. Please help.

pytzstring.py
import datetime
import pytz

pacific = pytz.timezone("US/Pacific")
fmt = '%m-%d %H:%M %Z%z'
starter = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 4, 29)
local = starter.astimezone(pacific)

Can you please tell us what error you’re getting? Have you tried this code in a Workspace to trouble-shoot?

It says: local isn't the right timezone I also tried: local = starter.replace(tzinfo=pytz.timezone("US/Pacific")) I got the result using localize()

The "astimezone" method is for converting already localized datetimes. To give a naive datetime a zone, use "localize":

local = starter.astimezone(pacific)  # original
local = pacific.localize(starter)    # corrected
