- date(2019,10,27,2,30) returns the date 2019-10-27T02:30:00 [local time]

- Date.FromUTC() moves that date so that it becomes 2019-10-27T02:30:00 
[UTC] (it's "FromUTC" because the local representation of its date 
argument, i.e. what you pass to Date(), is assumed to be UTC).

- CStr() converts a date to its UTC representation.

I agree that Date() needs one more argument to define the timezone
