Arthur Howard, of Catonsville, asks, "If the time zone immediately east of Pacific [Time] is Mountain, does the time zone immediately east of Eastern [Time] have a name?" Indeed it does, to the relief of Canadians living in the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and parts of Quebec. It's called Atlantic Standard Time, and it's an hour ahead of us. Clocks in Bermuda, the Eastern Caribbean islands, Venezuela, western Brazil, Bolivia and Chile also run one hour ahead of Eastern Time.
