Daylight Savings Time 2010 End Date on November 7: Fall Back Time Change 2010 – When is Daylight Saving Time 2010? When do we turn the clocks back in 2010? These are the questions of many as they seek on the day when they should change their clocks and watches as Daylight Saving Time ends.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in fall.

So now that fall is approaching, when should the time change in fall begin? When does daylight saving time end in 2010? According to Daylight Savings Time 2010 schedule indicated in the Uniform Time Act of 1966 and amended by Energy Policy Act of 2005, for all residents of US and Canada, effective Sunday, November 7, 2010 the clocks fall back to Standard Time. The official change will occur at 2 a.m. During Standard Time, clocks are turned backward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from evening to morning. Daylight Saving Time will return on March 13, 2011 in the US and Canada.

However, it is important to note however that some US states and territories, including Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas, do not observe Daylight Saving Time.

Meanwhile, in the UK, the clocks fell back to Standard Time last October 31, 2010. The official change occured at 6.30 AM IST (1.00 AM GMT). Daylight Saving Time will return on March 28, 2011 in the UK.
