Eastern Time (ET): EST and EDT

The Eastern Time Zone (ET) is an area 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-5) during the winter months (referred to as Eastern Standard Time or EST) and 4 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-4) during the summer months (referred to as Eastern Daylight Time or EDT).

Do clocks in the Eastern Time zone observe Daylight Saving Time?

In most states in the USA and in most provinces in Canada, Daylight-Saving Time (DST) is observed. During DST the time is shifted forward by 1 hour to Eastern Daylight Time (EDT); which is 4 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-4).

After summer time Eastern Time is shifted back by 1 hour to US Eastern Standard Time (EST) or (GMT-5).
