Magic Hour

When it's midnight in the Alaskan Time Zone, it's 11:00 P.M. in Siberia.
However, it's not "an-hour-earlier" there---it is, in fact, "23-hours-later" due to being across the International Dateline.
Hence, for a period of one whole hour it's the same date the world over.
In the Eastern Time Zone, that hour's between 4:00A.M. and 5:00 A.M.
In the Central Time Zone it's between 3:00 A.M. and 4:00A.M.
In the Pacific Time Zone it's between 1:00 A.M. and 2:00 A.M.

This morning February came the world over as of 4:00 A.M. Eastern Time.
...and for one whole hour it was February 1st the whole world over...
...then, at 5:00 A.M. Eastern Time it was midnight in Siberia---and the start of a Thursday morning February 2nd 2012.
