Clocks to receive an extra second tomorrow

Recommended Posts

UM-Bot

World time authorities are preparing to add an extra second to the time at midnight on June 30.

Tomorrow night a 'leap second' will be officially added to the world clock so that at 11:59:59 the time will temporarily hit 11:59:60 as the transition from one day to the next is delayed by one second.

One day, in a few centuries, people will look back at this very day for it is the one day that will end the society as we know it. The consequences will be far worst than Y2K...

"The last time a leap second was added was exactly two years ago on June 30 2012."

No. It doesn't happen at exactly every two years.

How often do they happen?

For a while - between 1972 and 1990 - there was nearly one a year. But they've gradually slowed down, and in the last 15 years there's been three, in 2005, 2008 and 2012.

Leap seconds always happen either on December 31 or June 30 - most have taken place on the former date.
