Time as adjusted to achieve longer evening daylight, especially in summer, by setting the clocks an hour ahead of the standard time. The artificial movin…g of clock time relatively to the Earth's time, so that the evenings appear longer at cost of later dawns. It was introduced in the UK during WW2, to reduce the need for artificial light in the working day, and became known as British Summer Time, one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time that is the international meridian time. (In fact that has slipped fractionally thanks to Continental Drift carrying NW Europe, with the British Isles being on the same continental plate, NE at about 20mm/year - 1 metre in 2 centuries! For accurate work a corrected version called Universal Co-ordinated Time is used.) Despite its introduction being over 70 years ago it is still contentious in the UK, partly because of the marked differences in day-lengths and their seasonal differences between the North of Scotland and the South of England. It is also responsible for a very widely-held notion that somehow the two annual changes lose or gain you an hour in bed. The official change-time is at 2am but many change their clocks before going to bed, hence their "loss" or "gain". Most European countries are an hour ahead of GMT during the Winter, so 2 hrs ahead in Summer. NB: the actual daylight lengths do not change - only our references to them.
The idea behind daylight savings is ultimately to shift clocks so that they can better take advantage of the lesser amount of sunlight available during winters. So, you …can look at daylight savings as being an attempt to "save" as much daylight as possible for when people are going about their business during the day. To create more sunlight hours in the evening in which to play, go shopping, and to golf.
it is Daylight Saving Time- no S after Saving BUT Most people say Daylight Savings Time..Why? When people say the phrase 'Daylight Savings Time' it sounds like a possessive n…oun, as in, the time that belongs to Daylight Saving, hence it's Daylight Saving's time. But, in actuality "Daylight Saving" is being used as an adjective - as in time that is saving daylight.
On Sunday, November 7, 2010 at 2 a.m., Daylight Saving Time ends - set your clock back one hour .
It usually takes about 3-4 days to get completely used to it. It differs between people. People who switch time zones a lot take less time, and vice-versa.
If you stay at one spot on the moon and don't move, the sun is up in your sky for roughly 14.77 days, and then down for the same length of time.
Daylight Saving Time gives us the opportunity to enjoy sunny summer evenings by moving our clocks an hour forward in the spring. Yet, the implementation of Daylight Saving Tim…e has been fraught with controversy since Benjamin Franklin conceived of the idea. Even today, regions and countries routinely change their approaches to Daylight Saving Time.
After the Fourth War between the Moon and Buzz Aldrin came to a bloody standstill in 1994, the two decided to make a pact that would see an end to the war once and for all. In… return for Moon promising to maintain tides worldwide for the rest of time, it was agreed that every year humanity would sacrifice an hour of their time and dedicate it to the moon as a tribute to his excellence. This pact has maintained the peace ever since, but it has been speculated that upon Aldrin signing the pact into effect, the Moon muttered, "Yes, every year you will creep one hour further towards your impending doom," to which Aldrin replied, "What did you mutter under your breath you no good virgin? Don't make me come over there and land my lunar module on your face again!"
Because some egghead thought that by setting the clocks forward during the summer months, we could save a little bit of electricity. The sun will be up "later", so people woul…dn't need lights on in their homes during some part of the evening hours. At least, that was the theory.
Earth's moon has a rotational period of about 28 (earth) days, so there would be about 14 days of daylight followed by 14 days of nighttime on the moon.
The shadows are longer.
By advancing the clock one hour, the sun appears to set later in the evening. Of course, it also rises one hour later in the morning. The daylight "saved" in the morning is us…ed in the evening. Supposedly, this saves energy, because people will not have to light candles, turn on electricity, or use other forms of illumination at night, or at least not as soon in the evening as otherwise. If this was ever true, it is insignificant today, because of the round-the-clock use of air conditioning and other forms of energy.
Daylight Savings Time has been in effect since the Standard Time Act in 1918, meaning we have been using it for ninety-three (93) years.
In The Moon
on the moon daylight last 13.65 days because if you divide 27.3 by 2 you get 13.65 days on the monn.
