Another Leap Second
A positive leap second is being introduced, a rare event, to keep the time close to the mean solar time. The sequence of dates for the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) second markers are displayed in the above image. In Australia this means we get an extra second at 10am on July 1. The last leap second was introduced three years ago.
