In North America the summer time (daylight saving time) begins on the second
Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November.
In Europe the summer time begins on the last Sunday of March and ends on the
last Sunday of October, except Iceland and Russia. President Putin abolished in 2011
winter time, so it's always summer time there as standard time.
In some parts of Australia and some other countries on the southern hemisphere
rules the winter time in the just called period for Europe. But also there recently
other dates were introduced. Sydney and Melbourne now also use winter and summer time.
Countries around the equator mostly use standard time (winter time).
I hope to correct soon my Java Scripts for Moscow, Sydney and Melbourne revised
winter or summer time.
The local solar time and stellar time accord with the local position of the sun
and the stars. When it is twelve o'clock solar time, the sun stands in the south. When it
is twelve o'clock stellar time, the Big Dipper stands above the Polar Star and twelve
hours later right under that place.
