The field "_time" contains the epoch time of the events, and is automatically displayed at search time on the local version of your time format and timezone.

If you want to create a new field with a different format, you can use the convert function.
and the formats

<mysearch> | convert timeformat="%A %B %d %H:%M:%S %Y" ctime(_time) AS mytime | table mytime _time _raw

When Splunk indexes data it does some implicit field extractions like date_wday, date_month, date_mday, date_year etc.... You can form your expected output from there or you can use splunk command like convert or strftime to generate the output you need.
