The location of the International Date Line

The International Date Line was a geographic boundary on Earth. The line ran along a degree of longitude in the Pacific Ocean and was used for timekeeping purposes; specifically, the boundary determined where one day began and ended in terms of the various time zones which were then used on Earth long before the advent of stardates.

Extended outward on latitudes from the International Date Line were several time zones, including Eastern Standard Time which ran along a latitude through the eastern United States of America. (TOS: "Tomorrow is Yesterday")

The American states of Hawaii and Alaska were relatively close to the International Date Line and the line ran directly through the middle of the Bering Sea. The former Earth nation of the Soviet Union also had territory very close to the date line. (TOS: "The Cage")

Although never mentioned by name, the International Date Line can clearly be seen on the map of the Pacific that the Talosians downloaded from the USS Enterprise computer in 2254.
