My house is "visible from space": it's right there on Google Maps. This phrase is meaningless, because it's almost entirely a function of weather, the camera being used, and whether something is covered.
(On the other hand, it's often parroted that the Great Wall of China is "the only man-made object visible from space"
You seem to be operating under the misunderstanding that the arbitrary numbers we've assigned to certain times of day have some kind of objective Platonic referent. "Eight o'clock" is just a social construct. If you want "12:00 noon" to be the instant when the sun is directly overhead (allowing for latitude adjustments), then you'll have to give up time zones altogether.
P.S. Does anyone actually work "9 'til 5"? Every office I've ever worked in has had a standard starting time of 8:00, an hour off for lunch, and a quitting time of 5:00.
If it's light out when most people get home from work, they're more likely to go shopping.
So do it year-'round.
In one fell swoop: all the hassles, the confusion, the circadian disruption, the traffic hazards, and the annoying small-talk related to the twice-a-year time changes go away.
