Switching Back to Standard Time

Just a quick reminder that all of our RECON teams outside of Arizona will be going off Daylight Savings this Sunday morning, November 6, at 2AM local time. In addition to giving participants an extra hour of sleep, turning clocks back will place the majority of our teams 8 hours behind Universal Time (UT) from now through March.

RECON teams should take care in converting UT times to local times:

  • Our Arizona teams remain on Mountain Standard Time = 7 hours behind UT
  • All other teams fall back onto Pacific Standard Time = 8 hours behind UT

All times listed on the Event Detail Page for 08FC76 are provided in UT and need to be adjusted for the correct time zone for each site. The event will be centered around 11:55 UT on November 23, 2016. Using the offsets above, this converts to:

  • 4:55 AM MST on the morning of November 23
  • 3:55 AM PST on the morning of November 23

All RECON Teams are reminded to complete the RECON Campaign Signup Form as soon as possible so that we can ensure telescope coverage for this Thanksgiving campaign!
