The Chatham Islands is an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean about 680 kilometres (420 mi) southeast of New Zealand. It consists of about ten islands within a 40-kilometre (25 mi) radius, the largest of which are Chatham Island and Pitt Island. The archipelago is called Rekohu ("misty sun") in the indigenous language Moriori, and Wharekauri in M?ori. It has officially been part of New Zealand since 1842, and includes the country's easternmost point, the Forty-Fours. The international date line lies to the east of the Chathams, even though the islands lie east of 180 longitude. Consequently, the Chathams observe their own time, 45 minutes ahead of New Zealand time, including during periods of daylight saving; their time zone is distinctive as one of very few which differ from others by a period other than a whole hour or half-hour. (New Zealand Time orients itself to 180 longitude).
