Timezones

The timezone EAT in Uganda

Timezones are always computed by their difference to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated". In Uganda exists only a single tonezone at UTC+3. E.g. New York is currently at UTC-4 in Eastern Time, so the time difference between NY and Uganda is 7 hours.

Uganda has no time difference between summer and winter. A daylight saving time doesn't exist.

Uganda has an east-west extension of 5.0 degrees of longitude. Given the country's location in Eastern Africa, this corresponds to about 560 kilometers. With this still relatively small extension, the course of the sun is only slightly different at different positions in the country. The position of the sun in the west of the country differs from that in the east by only about 20 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 20 minutes later in the west than in the east.

The Eastern Africa Time also applies in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Tanzania, Djibouti, Somalia and in Kenya.

No daylight saving time in Uganda

Due to the sun's orbit around the equator, the days are longer in summer (June to September in the northern hemisphere). Countries that switch to daylight saving time in the summer months align the daylight phase with the human rhythm. Unused bright morning hours are thus shifted into the evening (more information on daylight saving time here).

Due to its proximity to the equator, the impact in Uganda would not be particularly large. Kampala is located just 35 km from the equator. A day in midsummer would then not last from 06:46 to 18:57, but from 07:46 to 19:57. The effect would be quite noticeable in the evening, but the sun rising later in the morning falls at a time when many people are already awake. Thus, daylight saving time was never introduced in Uganda.
