Zulu Events

Can someone please help me understand Zulu a little bit more?

Here’s the Zulu/Event time I will be using as an example:
72000ZSEP16

As far as I’m aware this means the event is on September 7th at 20:00 Zulu time, aka 3 PM CDT. But can someone please explain what the SEP16 means? Because I am confused on if that is the date or if the 7 at the front is.

September 2016.

Read all about it here:

The correct way to say it is 072000ZSEP16.

07=Day of month
2000Z=Time (in Zulu)
SEP=Month
16=Year
