Stage: 2 and 3 Short Challenge Level:

The ten digits of a digital clock are shown below.

I have a $12$ hour digital clock which shows the time, using four digits, on a piece of glass, so it can be seen from both sides. At what time between $3$ o'clock and $10$ o'clock does the time look the same from both sides?
