A “Leap Second” will be added to the countdown in countries in the GMT Time zone to compensate for a slowdown in the Earth’s rotation.

The extra second will occur as clocks strike midnight and a time of 23:59:60 GMT will be recorded, delaying 2017 momentarily.

This is required because standard time lags behind atomic clocks.

  1. Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this.
    I am going to send this post to him. Fairly certain he’ll have a good read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
