Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:
Can you list the top facts and stats about Eastern Daylight Time?
Summarize this article for a 10 year old
|Eastern Time Zone|
|05:17, 25 November 2023 EST|
|Observance of DST|
|DST is observed in parts of this time zone.|
Places that use:
- Eastern Standard Time (EST), when observing standard time (autumn/winter), are five hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC−05:00).
- Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), when observing daylight saving time (spring/summer), are four hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC−04:00).
On the second Sunday in March, at 2:00 a.m. EST, clocks are advanced to 3:00 a.m. EDT leaving a one-hour gap. On the first Sunday in November, at 2:00 a.m. EDT, clocks are moved back to 1:00 a.m. EST, which results in one hour being duplicated. Southern parts of the zone in Panama and the Caribbean, however, do not observe daylight saving time.
