Saturday Will Be Slightly Longer Than You Were Expecting

at

This Saturday, in order to bring the atomic clock-based Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) in line with Universal Time (UT), which is based on the gradually slowing rotation of the earth, a leap second will be added to the last minute of the day.

It’ll be the 25th leap second added since 1972 by the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service.

We felt every one of them.
