Why is it PDT instead of PST?

Observance of DST
DST is observed throughout this time zone.

The Pacific Time Zone ( PT ) is a time zone encompassing parts of western Canada, the western United States, and western Mexico. Places in this zone observe standard time by subtracting eight hours from Coordinated Universal Time ( UTC−08:00 ). During daylight saving time, a time offset of UTC−07:00 is used.

In the United States and Canada, this time zone is generically called the Pacific Time Zone. Specifically, time in this zone is referred to as Pacific Standard Time (PST) when standard time is being observed (early November to mid-March), and Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) when daylight saving time (mid-March to early November) is being observed.

In Mexico, the corresponding time zone is known as the Zona Noroeste (Northwest Zone) and observes the same daylight saving schedule as the United States and Canada. The largest city in the Pacific Time Zone is Los Angeles, whose metropolitan area is also the largest in the time zone.

Is California currently PDT?

The state of California lies in the Pacific time zone. Pacific Standard Time (PST) runs approximately from November thru March. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) runs approximately from April to October. In 1986, the US declared that Daylight savings time:

Begins at 2am on the 1st Sunday in April when we ” spring ahead ” by 1 hr. Ends at 2am on the last Sunday in October when we ” fall back ” by 1 hr.

Note however that not all states adopt Daylight savings time. For example, Hawaii and Arizona do not. The timing for most astronomical events, such as solar or lunar eclipses, is quoted in Universal Time (UT), which is the time in Greenwich, UK. To convert from PDT and PST to/from UT use the following relationships: UT = PDT + 7 hrs (Apr – Oct) UT = PST + 8 hrs (Nov – Mar)

Is California behind UK time?

California is 8 hours behind London.

What is 3 hours behind California?

Just because it’s 3 p.m. in New York doesn’t mean it’s that time in Los Angeles. In fact, it’s noon in L.A. Why? It’s called Time Zones. It’s the law in the United States and in most countries in the world. It’s the law because most countries want to have a standard number of hours for daylight, no matter where in the country you live. Let’s say you go to school at 8 a.m.

Is the Sun up? More than likely. But when the Sun comes up before 8 a.m. in New York, kids who go to school in California would have to go to school in the dark if they had to go at the same time as you do. Why? Because the earth turns, that’s why. Each day, the earth completes one full turn. Parts of the earth are pointed toward the Sun for half of the day and then the other parts of the earth are pointed toward the Sun for the other half of the day.

By making it 8 a.m. in California when it’s 11 a.m. in New York, California schools can have kids show up for school at 8 a.m. and also have sunlight to greet those schoolkids. The same is true of business and other parts of life. We didn’t always have time zones, though.

For thousands of years, people didn’t even keep track of time at all, at least not in the way that we know. Sundials, water clocks, and other time pieces marked the passage of the Sun across the sky, but nobody was talking about seconds, minutes, or hours way back then. A few hundred years ago, clocks and watches were invented and timekeeping became a focus for many people.

But nobody really had an idea yet that time zones were needed. It wasn’t until 1878 that man named Sanford Fleming (who was born in Scotland but moved to Canada) proposed dividing the world into 24 time zones, each spaced a certain distance apart, according to measurements made on a globe.

  1. This arrangement was adopted by many countries.
  2. It divided the United States into four time zones: Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific.
  3. Each time zone as you go west is one more hour behind.
  4. Central is one hour behind Eastern.
  5. Mountain is one hour behind Central and two hours behind Eastern.
  6. You already know that Pacific is three hours behind Eastern.

American railroad companies helped by using the time zones for their train schedules. The railroad had exploded across the American landscape by this time, and the train companies wanted their trains to run on time. An agreement between the major companies was put forth in 1883. Finally, in 1918, Congress passed the Standard Time Act, which made the four time zones official. The Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific time zones were now enforced by federal law. Clocks were also set to a certain time on the minute hand as well.

  • Before, time varied from place to place depending on what time people thought it was.
  • The map dividing the U.S.
  • Into the four time zones doesn’t always go straight down state lines.
  • Some states, for instance, are in two different time zones.
  • Florida, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee are part of both the Eastern and Central time zones.

Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Texas are part of both the Central and Mountain time zones. And Idaho and Oregon are part of both the Mountain and Pacific time zones. So, as you take a trip through Tennessee, you might see clocks that say two different times.

  1. It just depends on whether you’re in eastern or western Tennessee.
  2. Why is this the case? Well, for one thing, not all the states had become states yet when the railroad companies started using their time zones in 1883.
  3. Not even by 1918 were all the states in the Union yet.
  4. Hawaii, the last of the 50 states, became a state in 1959.

(Hawaii and Alaska are entirely different matters because they’re so far to the west. Hawaii is three hours behind California; Alaska is one hour behind.) What does all this mean? It means that the more you travel in the United States, the more you’ll need to check your watch!

How far behind is California time?

California is in the Pacific Time Zone in the United States of America (USA). US Pacific Standard Time (PST) is 8 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time ( GMT-8 ).

Is all of California the same time?

Why California Needs Three Time Zones All Its Own | Connecting California What Time Is It In San Diego Zócalo’s Joe Mathews proposes a timely new map for California: Redwood Time (in green), Almond Time (red), and Cactus Time (yellow). Illustration by Celia Jacobs. Do you know what time it is, California? It’s time for new thinking about time, and time zones.

  • By putting Proposition 7 on this November’s ballot, the state legislature has granted us this opportunity to rethink our whole relationship to time.
  • The measure has been described in the media as ending daylight saving time, but that’s not right.
  • In fact, the measure would merely undo the 1949 ballot initiative that locked daylight saving time in place in California.

You may opt out or anytime. That would only be a dawn, not a dusk, in this tale of time, because Prop 7 is a rare and beautiful thing. Most ballot measures seek to close debates. But if it passes, Prop 7 would open a big conversation about how Californians set our clocks and live our lives.

  • That’s an opportunity we should embrace in California, which has a paradoxical relationship to time: We are a place that runs ahead of the rest of the world in culture and technology even as our clocks spend every day running hours behind the rest of the world.
  • One of Prop 7’s legislative sponsors, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, says that the measure’s passage would present the state with three options.

The first is status quo: We could leave current daylight saving time in place, and continue to set our clocks an hour forward in spring and an hour back in fall. But some Californians want to end those biannual clock shifts, in part because they correlate with increases in heart attacks, traffic accidents, and workplace accidents.

  1. So supporters raise the possibility of a second or third option, either of which would give our state its own time zone.
  2. Imagine it—California Time!) The second option would be to end daylight saving completely and return us to standard time year-round.
  3. The third option would be to make daylight saving permanent, which would require a two-thirds vote of the legislature and federal approval.

The debate about daylight saving is worldwide, and includes many competing arguments I don’t want to spend precious time on. Instead, I wish to emphasize the chance California now has to settle the question of what time policy is best—for the state and the world.

  1. How? By choosing all three time options, at the same time.
  2. I propose that California conduct a time experiment on itself, much the way Silicon Valley shows different groups of people different versions of the same website in a ritual called,
  3. In my experiment, different parts of California would live under different times—while researchers study the effects.

That’s right. For five years, let’s divide into three time zones and see what happens. This might sound crazy, but multiple time zones fit our peculiar geography. While Californians think of our state’s geography as running on a north-south axis, look at a map and you’ll see we’re a diagonal shape with a west-east orientation.

  1. San Francisco, after all, is more than five degrees’ longitude west of San Diego.
  2. Our eastern border with Arizona is more than 10 degrees east of our northwest corner.
  3. These distances mean that even though California is one time zone, it’s not really the same time wherever you are in California.
  4. San Francisco can experience sunrises and sunsets more than a half-hour later than San Diego.

In summer, the city of Blythe, on the Colorado River, sees the sun set an hour earlier than Cape Mendocino, on the northern coast. The best tool for dividing the state into time zones is the 120th meridian—120 degrees west. The 120th meridian serves as our north-south border with Nevada in Northern California, from the Oregon border to Lake Tahoe, where the border turns southeast.

  • To form time zones, make the 120th meridian the divide all the way through the state, from Tahoe south all the way to the Central Coast, where it hits the Pacific north of Santa Barbara.
  • West of the 120th meridian would be one time zone, Redwood Time, with standard time year-round.
  • To the east of the 120th meridian would be Cactus Time, with daylight saving time year-round.

This 120th meridian has one problem—it splits the San Joaquin Valley in half. No region should labor under two different times, California should create a third time zone just for the eight San Joaquin Valley counties—Kern, Kings, Tulare, Fresno, Madera, Stanislaus, San Joaquin, and Merced.

This would be the control group of our experiment, running on the existing seasonal daylight system. Call it Almond Time. Instituting multiple time zones would have virtues beyond merely conducting the experiment. Multiple zones could inspire more of the larger regional planning California needs, since different regions of the state would be on different times.

The multiple zones might soothe separatists who threaten to divide the state entirely—and not just by the time on the clocks. The zones could even be a force for unity in a politically fractious American West. Cactus Time California would be on the exact same time as its neighbor, Arizona, which long ago chose to stay at standard time year-round.

Cactus Time also would be Mountain Time in winter, removing the need for clock changes when Southern Californians ski in Utah or Colorado. Redwood Time would be the same as Alaska’s time in spring and summer, meaning no clock changes for Northern Californians exploring the Last Frontier. And given Silicon Valley’s power and links to companies in the Pacific Northwest, it seems possible that Northern California could pull Oregon and Washington into its experiment with standard time.

Is it too much to hope that greater time synchronization could inspire greater collaboration between Western states on energy, trade, or health care? Multiple time zones might well help with brownouts during late afternoon peak hours. If you can stagger the hour that people come home and turn up the AC and throw clothes in the dryer, you’d go a long way toward making California’s grid more stable.

And multiple time zones could encourage an experiment in starting the school day later, a policy that researchers suggest would make kids less tired and more ready to learn. With sunrise coming after 7:30 a.m. in Cactus Time, Southern California would be the place to try a 9 a.m. school start. When I tried out my idea of multiple time zones on Gonzalez Fletcher, the Prop 7 legislative sponsor, she didn’t like it.

“Can you imagine trying to do conference calls” with the different times? But she represents San Diego in the Assembly, and multiple time zones would provide a time subsidy for Southern California legislators and citizens who engage in state policymaking.

Under my plan, anyone flying to Sacramento from L.A. or San Diego would gain an hour as they traveled. So you would arrive on your hour-long flight to the state capital at the same hour you left, making it easier to get to morning hearings. Time is money, and when’s the last time Sacramento saved you any of either? Such an experiment might seem out-there, but out-there experiments are quintessentially Californian.

In the process we’d produce up-to-date data to share with a world that is debating what time regime could make us healthier, wealthier, or wiser. After five years of three zones, California could make its own informed choice. Or perhaps we’ll find we like the experiment, and decide that California is so timelessly diverse that its people can keep their own different times.

What country is hours behind California?

So, the time zone three hours behind California is UTC -11, which affects American Samoa (Pago Pago), Jarvis Island, Kingman Reef, Midway Islands, Niue (Alofi), and Palmyra Atoll (to name a few).
