To get the current date and time in python, you can use the datetime module.

In [1]: from datetime import datetime

In [2]: now = datetime.now()

In [3]: now
Out[3]: datetime.datetime(2022, 6, 21, 8, 25, 11, 35507)

In [4]: print(now)
2022-06-21 08:25:11.035507

To only get the time without the date.

In [8]: print(now.date())
2022-06-21
