Definition and Usage
The getUTCDay() method returns the day of the week (from 0 to 6) for the specified date, according to universal time.
Note: Sunday is 0, Monday is 1, and so on.
The UTC methods calculate their date assuming that the date object is of local time and date.
Tip: The Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) is the time set by the World Time Standard.
Note: UTC time is the same as GMT time.

weekday = "Sunday";
weekday = "Monday";
weekday = "Tuesday";
weekday = "Wednesday";
weekday = "Thursday";
weekday = "Friday";
weekday = "Saturday";
var n = weekday[d.getUTCDay()];
