Nobody noticed

 

Well, a "Leap Second" was just added (at 8 PM EDT) to all the atomic clocks around the world and nobody noticed! Well, maybe the folks that manage the GPS satellites did and the folks that manage the atomic clocks.

Also, if you don't have clouds (like we do here), you can see Venus and Jupiter almost like a double star. It won't happen again for about 24 years.

Planets

We have had an excellent view of Venus and Jupiter each evening looking west over the Gulf of Mexico from Tampa. The planets are easy to spot due to the absence on artificial light over the Gulf.

I watched it--

I watched it on my timing/frequency reference box. No big celebration; a little one in that nothing stopped working.

One of my reference units did go sideways in early June though, with a GPS week rollover bug; this means it thinks it's 1995... Frequency reference is fine, and the time is ok for visual, but I don't want any of my computers using it!

Independence Day evening, Venus and Jupiter put on their own display!

I noticed....

and figure I'll never catch up on that extra second sad

second planet

I liked seeing the two planets together. Made me think of what the early humans might have thought.

The extra second? It gave me time to think about that for a second.

Time-nuts...

Take a look at the time-nuts forum, and you'll find plenty of folks who did videos of their GPS clocks going 58 ... 59 ... 60 ...00

And will undoubtedly do it again in another few years when we have the next leap second!

Missed it

I was going to watch for it, but then I completely forgot until so long, I couldn't even check the logs to see if my systems noticed.

So That's What That Was

I thought I felt something funny.
