Eastern Time Zone Edit

The Eastern Time Zone falls mostly along the east coast of Northern America. Its time offset is (UTC-5) during Standard time and (UTC-4) during Daylight saving time.

The time observed in this zone is called Eastern Standard Time (EST) when observing standard time; Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) when observing daylight savings.

In the United States, the following states are part of the Eastern Time Zone: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Additionally, the eastern half of Kentucky, the eastern third of Tennessee, the majority of Florida, and all of Michigan except the four Upper Peninsula counties that border Wisconsin (Gogebic County, Iron County, Dickinson County, Menominee County), and most of Indiana (all except the Chicago and Evansville metro areas) are part of the Eastern Standard Time Zone. The parts of these states not in the Eastern Standard Time Zone are in the Central Standard Time Zone.

In Canada, most of the provinces of Quebec and Ontario, plus most of the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut belong to the Eastern Standard Time Zone.
