Time Goes On
Believe it or not but 8.02pm on February 20 this year will be an
historic moment in time.
It will not be marked by the chiming of any clocks or the ringing of
bells, but at that precise time, on that specific date, something will
happen which has not occurred for 1,001 years and will never happen
As the clock ticks over from 8.01pm on Wednesday, February 20, time
will, for sixty seconds only, read in perfect symmetry 2002, 2002, 2002,
or to be more precise - 20:02, 20/02, 2002.
This historic event will never have the same poignancy as the 11th hour
of the 11th day of the 11th month which marks Armistice Day, but it is
an event which has only ever happened once before, and is something
which will never be repeated.
The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long
before the days of the digital watch and the 24-hour clock - at 10.01am
on January 10, 1001.
And because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is something that will
never happen again.
Now, of course, it can be pointed out that a similar event will occur at
9:12pm on  December 12, 2112, but that does require a slightly more
artificial take on date formats.
