By now I hope everyone has recovered from our semi-annual lurch in time. After more than half a year of Daylight Savings Time, we’ve finally returned to the more sensible Standard Time. Daylight Savings Time was implemented in the United States in 1918 by the Woodrow Wilson administration, and it has been with us pretty much ever since. Most astronomers I know really hate Daylight Savings Time. It's true that by setting our clocks ahead one hour, we can stretch out the afternoon and evening daylight periods, but for a stargazer, this can be a real nuisance. In the astronomy business, Daylight Savings Time is known as Darkness Wasting Time, because it makes us wait an extra hour for the skies to darken and allow us to see the night sky. Now with the nights getting longer and daylit periods shorter, and a return to Standard time, at least until next year we can get some serious observing done long before the midnight hour.
