Convert postgres timestamp (+ timezone) to Date object [Javascript]

Our postgres database returns a string with a timestamp:

'2016-07-24T03:32:45.678Z'


We are trying to use the
moment.js
library, but it only accepts a Date object.

How can I convert the above timestamp+timezone into a Date object using Javascript?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Answer

I needed to use moment(some_date).fromNow()

Instead of moment.startOf(some_date).fromNow()
