Timezones in the Federated States of Micronesia

There are altogether 3 official timezones in the Federated States of Micronesia, but practically only 2 different times. Countries with a large distance from eest to east are often devided into two or more timezones to adjust daytimes to the position of the sun. Timezones are always computed relative to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated".

In the Federated States of Micronesia, there is a time difference of one hour between the east and the west. Federated States of Micronesia have no time difference between summer and winter. A daylight saving time doesn't exist.

No daylight saving time in the Federated States of Micronesia

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 the Federated States of Micronesia would not be particularly large. Weno is located just 830 km from the equator. A day in midsummer would then not last from 05:36 to 18:12, but from 06:36 to 19:12. 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 the Federated States of Micronesia.
