Approximately 4:22 am, unless it is a 24 hour clock. Then it would be 24 hours later around 16:22.

Suppose the two hands will be in the same position ( that is one over the other) in t hours.

In t hours the hour hand will travel 30*t degrees,

and will make an angle of 120+30t with the vertical

In t hours the minute hand will travel 360*t degrees and will make an angle of 360t with the vertical

Equatiing the two we have 120+30t = 360t

or t = 120/330 = 4/11 hours
