Full Answer

Evening hours vary according to the seasons. In summer, evenings tend to be longer because the sun sets later during this part of the year. In winter, the sun sets earlier and shortens the evening. Evening hours tend to be cool in summer and cold in winter. For most people, this is time for relaxation and unwinding after a day of hard work.

  • Q:

    How do you convert 2pm GMT to EST?

    A:

    You can convert any time listed in GMT to EST by subtracting 5 hours, which means that at 2 p.m. GMT it would be 9 a.m. EST. Greenwich Mean Time, commonly abbreviated as GMT, is the world standard time keeper, and is also referred to as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). Keep in mind that during the summer months when daylight savings time is in effect, the difference between GMT and EST/EDT is only four hours, instead of five.

  • Q:

    What causes the alternation between day and night?

    A:

    The Earth rotates around its axis, allowing half of the globe to face the sun at a given time, with a full day taking approximately 24 hours. The planet is always separated into a day side and a night side, with the day side facing the sun. The lengths of day and night are influenced by the tilt of Earth's axis; it is not a vertical line relative to the ecliptic, or the orbital plane.
