Python Dates and Times in Python Where on Earth do Timezones Make Sense? pytz Format

pytz format challenge task 2

I need help with this challenge. I have attached my code

import datetime
import pytz

fmt = '%m-%d %H:%M %Z%z'
starter = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 4, 29)

pacific = pytz.timezone('US/Pacific')
local = pacific.localize(starter)

def pytz_string:
    return local.strftime(fmt)

you most likely already passed it but just in case you haven't you made a function named pytz_string not a variable, so you shouldn't need to have it return anything.

so it kinda walks you through what it wants as a line in the challenge.

pytz_string = local.strftime(fmt)
