Time Zone

UTC (UTC+0) Ascension Island is an island in the South Atlantic Ocean, around 1,600 kilometres (994 mi) from the coast of Africa. It is a dependency of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena, which is 1,287 kilometres (800 mi) to the south east. The Island is named after the day of its recorded discovery, Ascension Day.

The island is the location of Wideawake Airfield, which is a joint facility of the Royal Air Force and the United States Air Force. The island was used extensively by the British military during the Falklands War. Ascension Island hosts one of five ground antennas (others are on Kwajalein, Diego Garcia, Colorado Springs and Hawaii) that assist in the operation of the Global Positioning System (GPS) navigational system.
