Tehran is currently UTC/GMT +4:30 hours. The current downtime is for
2:00 PM Pacific, or 1:30 AM in
Tehran. That seems to be unfortunately still "prime time" for the
nightly demonstrations, one of which is
going on now.
If the idea is to avoid such collisions, 5:00 PM or even 6:00 PM PDT
would probably be better.
