Daylight Saving Time in North America

Most of the Unit­ed States and Cana­da are now on Day­light Sav­ing Time, and have moved the clocks ahead one hour. This means that Pacif­ic Time/Second Life Time is now only sev­en hours behind Green­wich Mean Time (GMT, aka Uni­ver­sal Time or UT) instead of eight.

Clocks in Europe and sev­er­al oth­er parts of the world go for­ward lat­er. In the Euro­pean Union, Sum­mer Time comes in on the last Sun­day in March at 1am Uni­ver­sal Time — March 28 this year.

Day­light Sav­ing or Sum­mer Time is most com­mon in high­er lat­i­tudes and a great many coun­tries either side of the Equa­tor and else­where (includ­ing a few US states and Cana­di­an provinces) do not use it at all.

As a result, please check care­ful­ly to be sure that you attend an event in Sec­ond Life at the cor­rect time if you live out­side North Amer­i­ca, espe­cial­ly until the end of the month: you may find events are occur­ring an hour ear­li­er than you expect.
