Consider time zones. The "Z" in your output indicates GMT time.

As an example of how to get local time, submit this in Firefox's Web Console:

var d=new Date("10/29/2018"); 
console.log('toString() => ' + d.toString()); 
console.log('toISOString() => ' + d.toISOString()); 
console.log('toLocaleString() => '+d.toLocaleString()); 
console.log('toGMTString() => ' + d.toGMTString());

I get:

toString() => Mon Oct 29 2018 00:00:00 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)

toISOString() => 2018-10-29T07:00:00.000Z

toLocaleString() => 10/29/2018, 12:00:00 AM

toGMTString() => Mon, 29 Oct 2018 07:00:00 GMT
