Europe will turn forward the clocks in less than 7 weeks from now. Rusia did fall back on Oct 26th last year and will NOT do spring forward!!! Which is good considering the huge anomalies caused by extremely biased timezones of DST.

Map of timezone anomalies as of Jan 2014, when Russia adopted year round DST. Siberian winter : brutal temp combined with brutal sunrise time given its latitude.

Chile decided to use DST time indefinitely.

The U.S. state of New Mexico is currently trying to do away with Standard Time, and use Daylight Time all the time.

Apparently that causes sunshine duration recording error/bug for weatheronline forecasts... Fairbanks example with post midnight sunset times due to wrong timezone



Negative sunshine hours!!!

https://www.timeanddate.com/news/tim...al-alaska.html

That proposal would result in year-round AKDT (Alaskan Daylight Time, UTC-8) for the entire state

The westernmost point of Alaska is in Attu Island, around 172.9 degrees east

Attu's current time zone is UTC-10 (standard time), UTC-9 (DST).

https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/@4045759

With that proposal, Attu's solar noon would range from 4:10 to 4:41 pm (16:10 to 16:41)

Latest sunrise would be at 12:40 in late December. Yes, 40 minutes after clock noon, almost 14 degrees south of Arctic Circle!
Latest sunset would be at 00:56 (almost 1 am), late June. With civil twilight until 01:48 (nearly 2 am)!

Earliest sunset would be at 8:10 pm (20:10), civil twilight until almost 9pm (8:52 pm to be exact!)
Earliest sunrise would be at 8:00 am, with civil dawn at 7:09 am

Van Horn, TX despite being at 105W, which should be the geographic median of Mountain Time (GMT -7/-6 DT), is in fact in Central Time (GMT -6/-5 DT), so their late sunset is at 9:07pm and early sunrise is at 6:55am; while their early sunset is at 5:56pm and their late sunrise is at 8:18am; all despite being at 31N latitude
