# COmparison

Simple comparison is offered up via the basic operators. Remember that the comparison is made in the UTC timezone so things aren't always as they seem.

### #CODE

`import pendulum>>> first = pendulum.datetime(2012, 9, 5, 23, 26, 11, 0, tz='America/Toronto')>>> second = pendulum.datetime(2012, 9, 5, 20, 26, 11, 0, tz='America/Vancouver')>>> first.to_datetime_string()'2012-09-05 23:26:11'>>> first.timezone_name'America/Toronto'>>> second.to_datetime_string()'2012-09-05 20:26:11'>>> second.timezone_name'America/Vancouver'>>> first == second     #by comparingTrue>>> first != secondFalse>>> first > secondFalse>>> first >= secondTrue>>> first < secondFalse>>> first <= secondTrue>>> first = first.on(2012, 1, 1).at(0, 0, 0)>>> second = second.on(2012, 1, 1).at(0, 0, 0)# tz is still America/Vancouver for second>>> first == secondFalse>>> first != secondTrue>>> first > secondFalse>>> first >= secondFalse>>> first < secondTrue>>> first <= secondTrue`
